The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh’s upcoming winter alumni events are sure to help those looking to escape the Wisconsin cold and celebrate their Titan pride.

“Our winter  alumni events provide a neat opportunity to engage with fellow UWO Titans outside of Wisconsin and with those UWO alumni and friends who choose to escape winter,” Alumni Director Christine Gantner said.

The UWO winter alumni events begin with the only event in Wisconsin: a weekend getaway to Kalahari Resort Waterpark in the Wisconsin Dells, Jan. 3-5. Titans will not only enjoy the waterpark and a pizza social but also interact with graduates from other UW System universities.

The Titan alumni gatherings then hit the road with events in Arizona, Florida and Hawaii.

“We have quite a following in these areas thanks to our wonderful alumni chapter volunteers,” Gantner said. “All UWO alumni, their families and friends are welcome to join in these festivities to celebrate Titan pride.”

The final event is a Brewers game against the Oakland Athletics during its spring training trip in Phoenix, Arizona on March 14.
