In a press release, Kyra Schuckman, coordinator of alumni services, said, “I invite all QU alumni, no matter where you live, to wear a QU Alumni button or your favorite QU gear and take a picture of yourself to share on social media using #qualumniday. I encourage all QU alumni in the Quincy region to join us for the day’s events as we celebrate their successes as graduates.”

The day will start with “Mimosas with McGee” at the Connie Niemann Center at North Campus from 7:30-9 a.m. Alumni are invited to enjoy lunch, courtesy of fellow alumnus Luis Barnes from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. at the QU cafeteria in student union.
