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. 2019 offers two opportunities to tour including a June 15-27 I Love New York trip and a weeklong Show Me Missouri excursion November 2-9.

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. Cost for the meal and program is still a bargain at just $5! The 2019 event will take place on Friday, May 17 from 4-7 pm. More details and an easy online registration form will be available here in late winter or early spring.

Homecoming – The 2018 Homecoming was a huge success (photo gallery). Thanks to the many alumni who came home to the hill to support our students and spend time with their MLC family. 2019 Homecoming weekend dates are set for October 11-13. In addition to cheering on Knights football, soccer, volleyball, or cross country, a host of other events will 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, a photo booth, and the carnival-like games and atmosphere at the free Family Fun Zone. Gather with fellow grads Saturday evening for beverages and hors d’ouvres at the Alumni Mixer. Conclude your weekend with Sunday morning worship in the Chapel of the Christ followed by brunch in the cafeteria.

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.
