Annual Events

Alumni Tours – Join with alumni and other WELS members on trips to destinations that cause us to marvel at God’s majesty, rejoice in His guidance of history, and praise him for his abundant blessings. The tours typically run from 6-16 days and include sightseeing, daily devotions, and fellowship. It strives to provide an affordable, enjoyable, and educational option for those who enjoy group travel with like-minded believers.  Recent tours have fell victim to COVID concerns but, Lord  we plan

Commencement Dinner – The DMLC Alumni & Friends had a long-standing tradition of gathering for dinner and a business meeting prior to the annual commencement concert. We are glad to continue the tradition. In place of the business meeting, college representatives share updates on new and exciting programs. The cost for the meal and program is still a bargain at just $5! The 2022 version was a wonderful success after a two-year event hiatus.

Homecoming – The 2022 Homecoming is shaping up to be another wonderful weekend of worship, fellowship, and fun. In addition to cheering on Knights athletics, a host of other events are being planned to welcome you back to your hilltop home. Be sure to take in the popular Friday night Talent Show. Bring the family and start your Saturday with the 1-mile Sprinter Campus Fun Run (info coming soon). Register in the LSC and enjoy a free alumni gift. Enjoy complimentary treats and the carnival-like games and atmosphere at the free Family Fun Zone. Gather with fellow grads Saturday evening for the Alumni Mixer at Kegel Klub. Conclude your weekend with Sunday morning worship in the Chapel of the Christ followed by brunch in the cafeteria. Disc Golfers can enjoy a student/alumni tournament on our Luther Hollow campus course.

Reunions – Every year, classes and groups that shared a common experience (teams, musical casts, etc.) get together, reacquaint, and reminisce about their days here on the hill. MLC is happy to host these gatherings and the Alumni Relations office is happy to help.
