Annual Events

Alumni Tour – 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 annual tour typically runs from 6-12 days in either June or July. It strives to provide an affordable, enjoyable, and educational option for those who enjoy group travel with like-minded believers.

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 2017 event will take place on Friday, May 12 from 4-7 pm. Watch for more details coming soon.

Homecoming – 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. Register in the LSC and enjoy a free alumni gift. Enjoy cotton candy, the photo booth, and games 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.
