College To Celebrate 150 Years with Gala Event

In 1858, the first course with business content was offered at The University of Iowa. Since then, business education at Iowa has grown tremendously. Today, the Tippie College of Business has more than 39,000 living alumni, all of whom can credit this University for providing them with the training necessary to excel in the world of business.

Tippie alumni are all over the world and have enjoyed success in numerous fields. Some have become CEOs, some have enjoyed their success and retired early, and some are just starting their careers. But they all have something in commonÂ… a business degree from Iowa.

The College will be holding a gala on Friday, September 5, 2008 to bring together Iowa business alumni in celebration of this grand occasion. You are invited to join us in the Iowa Memorial Union for an unforgettable evening featuring entertainment by Gentlemen of Leisure. You'll have the opportunity to rub shoulders with Iowa business alumni from around the world—and the next day you can see the Hawkeyes take on Florida International University at Kinnick Stadium.

Tickets to the gala are $150 each and tables of 8 are available for $1500. Table purchases provide one seat for a deserving current Tippie student to join you. To make sure that you receive an invitation, email business-alumni@uiowa.edu today.
