A group of Alumni pose together at an Alumni Relations gathering.


Throughout the year, the Office of Alumni Relations and the Alumni Society sponsors a number of events, reunions and programs on and off-campus to help alumni stay connected to their alma mater and to each other. 

Please let Alumni Relations know if you have an idea for an alumni gathering by suggesting an event.

We look forward to seeing you at upcoming alumni gatherings!

Join us for the first ever Sweetheart Weekend in Winona! We would like all couples that met in Winona or at Winona State to come “home” and re-kindle your romance at the place where it all started. Maybe you didn’t meet at Winona State, but found out later that you both went to school in Winona at the same or different times? We also encourage you to attend!
