LGBT Student Life

LGBT Homecoming Brunch

The Pride Alumni Community held our first alumni and student reception as part of the Homecoming 2007 campus festivities. The PAC Homecoming Brunch has become our signature annual event, bringing members of our community together to celebrate Homecoming, visit with old friends, make new friends, meet the students of the IWU Pride Alliance, announce the recipient of the PAC Scholarship and be joined by a distinguished speaker.
