Thanks and WOW! Slugs flock to 50th anniversary Alumni Weekend for biggest alumni gathering in campus history.
UCSC was buzzing with excitement as we prepared to welcome home more than 2,000 alums and guests for Alumni Weekend 2015!
Homeward Bound: Train, plane and automobile -- Slugs came from all over and were excited to not only see our campus, but also the beautiful beach town of Santa Cruz.
Tattoos, blankets, T-shirts and stickers: We gave away so much great Slug Swag!
We had not one but TWO Sammy the Slugs front and center, welcoming everyone home. This 20ft custom Sammy balloon sculpture used more than 1,000 balloons and was created by Alumnus Addi Somekh of New Balloon Art.
Our photo booth, a favorite feature of this event, snapped and printed more than 240 photos of alums in Slug gear.
Campus tours ran every day as part of Alumni Weekend, including a Lime Works Tour and Farm Tour, giving our alums the chance to see the campus again through new eyes.
