Attention Alumni:

We are disappointed that we must postpone the upcoming Alumni Encore event originally scheduled for Saturday, May 16, 2020. We will reschedule for May 2021. Stay tuned for more information.

BW is responding to recommendations from the Governor of the State of Ohio along with local and national health agencies to reduce the risk of possible transmission of COVID-19, commonly known as novel Coronavirus. To that end, BW has ceased face-to-face on campus instruction for the remainder of the spring semester.

As part of our goal to decrease the number of instances that require our community members to gather in groups, we have canceled all on campus and off campus events and restricted commercial carrier travel for all BW employees.

Alumni Encore


Return, remember, reconnect!

Return to BW for a day on campus designed specially for Yellow Jackets for Life! Re-discover the BW you love through opportunities to connect, learn, and explore. 

IT'S FREE! All events are complimentary, and all alumni, from all classes, are invited to all events.

Begin the day with an All Alumni Continental Breakfast kicking off a variety of Alumni College sessions led by BW's engaging faculty and staff members who will present brief talks on timely topics and stay for continued conversation. Details on each session to follow.

At noon, connect with friends and fellow YJ4Ls over a casual, complimentary All Alumni Luncheon. President Bob Helmer will share a preview of exciting things to come at BW, and the Class of 1970 will present its class gift in honor of its 50th Reunion. After lunch, we'll move outdoors (weather permitting) for a festive Ice Cream Social.

We're excited to help alumni reconnect with BW and discover the latest places on and around campus in a fun new way. Board "Lolly the Trolley" after the alumni lunch and hop on / off at designated locations as Lolly loops around town. Take a coffee break at Starbucks, browse the special Alumni Encore sales at The Buzz on Front, and see the progress made at the Austin E. Knowlton Center construction site.

BW's host team of Student Ambassadors are also available for personalized tours. Participate in BW's oral history project at one or more memory stations throughout campus, sharing your BW story solo or with friends.

A full Alumni Encore schedule and registration will release this spring. Look for a postcard in your mailbox and email updates.
