Alumni gatherings allow former students to reconnect and once again enjoy one another’s company. Alumni have enjoyed Warrior Adventures over the past two years. Additional adventures will be announced in coming months. Similar activities will be planned in other areas where sufficient numbers of alumni are located. Here are some of our upcoming and previous adventures.
Alumni, their families, their friends, and Lake Norcentra Volunteer Day participants are invited to a special evening at Comerica Park on Saturday, July 18, 2015. The evening will begin at 7 p.m. and feature the Detroit Tigers as they face the Baltimore Orioles, followed by a dramatic post-game fireworks show. Event tickets are available for $38 each (Tigers ticket price). Attendees will receive a $10 voucher for stadium food purchases courtesy of the Alumni Association. During the game, there will be drawings for door prizes, including a set of four tickets to another Tigers game provided by Kevin Stewart (’04) and The Stewart Team of ReMax Defined in downtown Rochester.
Reservation Deadline: June 17, 2015. A limited number of tickets are available, so they will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis.
Previous Warrior Adventures
Detroit Zoo Family Day
On two occasions, alumni and their families have visited the Detroit Zoo. Each day began when the zoo opened. Everyone was able to visit the exhibits on their own until lunch time. Participants then gathered at a tent in the picnic area for lunch before once again visiting the exhibits in the afternoon.
Day at the Cultural Center
In 2013, alumni and their families visited two renowned attractions in the Detroit Cultural Center. In the morning, participants toured the Detroit Historical Museum at their own pace. After a luncheon catered by Slows BarBQ, participants dispersed to the Detroit Institute of Arts.
Based upon the popular television series Downton Abbey, Meadow Brook Hall hosts Downton Days each winter. Rochester College alumni, their families, and their friends participated in a behind-the-scenes Downton Days tour in 2015. The tour, “A Servant’s Life,” focused on the role of the house staff in a country estate.
