Whether they’re organized by our alumni office or our alumni themselves, events near and far offer opportunities to have fun and reconnect with WSU and Winona itself. Check out some of the fun we’ve had this year and stay up to date on upcoming events!
Shut Down Third Street
Shut Down Third Street took place in downtown Winona in September 2018. The event, which – you guessed it – shut down third street was organized by WSU alumni-led production house Treedome after receiving a Main Street Program Grant. The street festival celebrated building local business, art, and culture by providing a platform for artists and musicians to interact with the Winona community.
It plans to return for a second year on September 21, 2019!
Warrior Game Day Experience
WSU hosted our Warrior Game Day Experience event before every home football game in 2018 – and our WSU alumni came out in full force. Check out our 2019 Game Day Experience events!

Mass Comm Reunion
The WSU Mass Comm Alumni Reunion took place this past January at Day Block Brewing Company in the Twin Cities. Ka Vang ’16, Aly Hagglund ’16, Brett Burger ’16 were among those who joined us!
September 2018 brought over 100 members of WSU’s “Ultimate Family” back to campus to mark the 40thanniversary of the Ultimate Frisbee Clubs at WSU.
WSU’s first men’s Ultimate Frisbee team, the Mississippi Valley Kling-Onz, was founded in 1978 by Tim Mackey, followed by the first women’s team, the Bad Monaz, by Angie Ogren in 1988. 40 years later – both teams are still going strong. In 2008, Eric Enge started an Ultimate Scholarship at WSU, raising over $125,000 to date. The scholarship awards $2,000 every year to an individual who has great interest for the sport of Ultimate.
