Alumni gatherings allow former students to reconnect and once again enjoy one another’s company. Alumni have enjoyed Warrior Adventures over the past three 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 previous adventures.
Previous Warrior Adventures
Three special nights have taken place at Comerica Park. This year, the event included group seating for the game, and the Alumni Association provided food vouchers for participants. The evening ended with a dramatic fireworks presentation.
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.
