It's that time of the year again! Homecoming at UCR! The American Indian Alumni Association of UC Riverside is hosting a homecoming gathering for our current and future alumni. We would like to take this opportunity to introduce our new board, and provide a venue where we can establish connections with our future alumni.
Our gathering will include an introduction to our organization's new board with an alumni panel to follow. Also featured is the activity "Speed Greeting" that is sure to help establish and stregnthen networking opportunities and relations between both our alumni and current students.
A late afternoon lunch will be served.
Homecoming weekend will also feature CHASS, Arts on the Patio. This afternoon showcase
will feature a dynamic hip hop dance performance, a taste of Bollywood, and musical
performances highlighting the unique sounds of UCR. This interactive program will be fun and
full of surprises. If poetry is more your style, join us for a poetry reading with California Poet
