The annual IPFW Alumni Association Mastodon roast will have something a little extra Thursday evening.
The new name and logo for the school's alumni association will be officially unveiled. This comes after the September announcement that the Office of Advancement partnered with LaBov Marketing Communications and Training to develop a brand and strategy for the new alumni association that will be independent from the Indiana University and Purdue University alumni associations.
“We are excited to be able to share this news in an official capacity,” said Angie Fincannon, vice chancellor for advancement. “The Mastodon Roast is the perfect venue to reveal what we believe will change our campus and our community for the better.’
The Alumni Roast is an annual event, to welcome past students back to campus and keep them updated on the future of the university. The event is Thursday night at 5:30, at the Busse Alumni Center on the west edge of the campus. The Mastodon Roast is free with a reservation, and open to alumni, staff, faculty and their families. There will be food, activities for kids, and a silent auction to raise funds for alumnischolarships.
