On Saturday, October 24, 2015, 4:00-6:30pm you are cordially invited to stop by our CLAS table at the Expo and our featured activities related to the theme Once Upon a Laker.  See Alumni Relations webpage.

Our featured departments this year are History and Geology.

  • The empires of the future are the empires of the mind…(Winston Churchill).
  • Minerals, rocks and fossils of Michigan – Explore the varied materials in our state and how they are used.  How are you impacted by the geology around you?  We will have mineral, rock and fossil give-aways.

  • The College of Liberal Arts & Sciences invites you to tell and illustrate your Laker story and hear some of our most magical alumni tell theirs. CLAS will have a table to greet our graduates and their families and provide spirit beads to make the day extra festive.
