William Peace University Alumni Weekend 2018

The festivities start Friday, April 20 and continue Saturday, April 21, 2018. Make sure to register by March 9 to receive the Early Bird discount on some events.

Weekend Schedule

Friday, April 20:


6:00 - 8:00 p.m. - Buds N Brew (Oak & Dagger Public House)
Kick-off Alumni Weekend by reminiscing with your Peace buds during happy hour at Oak & Dagger Public House. Make sure to try the Pacer Pale Ale, a specialty beer brewed for WPU. $1 of every pint sold benefits student scholarships. Includes appetizers and two beverage tickets. (For just $10 more, receive a WPU pint glass to fill with Pacer Pale Ale!)

7:00 p.m. - WPU Theatre Presents: Assassins.
This student production of Broadway legend Stephen Sondheim’s Assassins is a dark comedy about violence and the American Dream. John Wilkes Booth, Lee Harvey Oswald, and other infamous assassins (and would-be assassins) take the stage in a surreal exploration of America’s obsession with success and show business and the ways that Presidential killers are more frighteningly familiar than we might like to admit.

Saturday, April 21:


9:00 - 10:30 a.m. - Breakfast with the President
Join William Peace University President, Dr. Brian C. Ralph, for breakfast on Saturday morning as he shares the University's Believe in Peace Strategic Plan, new campus master plan, and current updates from campus.

11:00 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. - Alumni Chapel Service, 2018 Reunion Year Pinning, and Alumni Awards Ceremony
Campus Chaplain Rev. Lee Carter will lead us in a service including 2018 Reunion Year Pinning and the 2018 Alumni Awards Ceremony. The service will close with another classic Peace tradition, singing the alma mater around the fountain.

12:30 - 2:00 p.m. - Lunch
A variety of options are available for attendees. You can join students in the Belk Dining Hall, visit the food truck rodeo happening on campus, or check out the local area restaurants, many of which will be offering discounts for WPU Alumni Weekend attendees.

1:30 - 2:30 p.m. - Peace College Vintage Sale
Wishing you had more Peace College memorabilia? Our vintage sale will have a variety of items from t-shirts to Christmas ornaments available for purchase. Proceeds will benefit student scholarships. During the sale, students will also be presenting their research projects presented at the National Conference of Undergraduate Research.
