During UWSP’s Iris Reunion Weekend, we welcome multiple generations of Pointers for festivities centered on celebration, tradition and reconnecting. Iris Reunion 2022 honors those in the classes of 2012 (Purple Iris), 1997 (Silver Iris) and 1972 (Golden Iris).

A Message from the Committee:

We are looking forward to celebrating our Iris Reunion with you during Homecoming 2022! This fall promises to be packed with all the Pointer pride and spirit we remember from our time as students. The Iris Reunion has a special path through Homecoming that includes shuttle pick-ups and drop-offs, lunch with the UWSP Alumni Board of Directors, a campus tour, an alumni college class and a place to gather under the alumni reunion tent on Saturday.

Iris Reunion events throughout the weekend are free for our group to attend with the exceptions of the UWSP Athletic Hall of Fame and the UWSP Homecoming football game. Tickets for those events are separate and must be purchased individually.

See you in the fall!
