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


Alumni are welcome to gather and reconnect at many events throughout the year.

Come back to events on campus to relive some college memories and make new memories at events held across the United States.

Upcoming Events in 2022

Along with our exciting calendar events, we invite you to our big annual events.

Game Day Experience

Fun, food and community are coming to Johnson Street prior to Winona State Football home games!

All are invited to the Game Day Experience including food trucks, giveaways and contests, inflatables, Warrior Kids Zone, live DJ and the all-time favorite, Warrior Walk.

Free and all are welcome to join in for #WinonaGameDay!


There is no better time to show your Warrior pride than at Homecoming, the biggest alumni gathering of the year.

Each fall, thousands of alumni return to their alma matter for a special celebration of community and join with fellow alumni, current WSU students and the community to enjoy both planned and spontaneous festivities!

Sweetheart Weekend

On Sweetheart Weekend, all couples who met in Winona or at WSU are welcome to come “home” and rekindle your romance at the place where it all began.

You’re encouraged to attend, even if you didn’t meet at WSU, but discovered later that you both went to school in Winona.

Day Trips & Travel Programs

From trips to theatre productions to tours of California wine country to international travel, there's a variety of opportunities to explore the world with day trips and travel programs organized through the WSU Retiree Center.

These experiences are open to everyone including alumni, faculty and retirees.
