50th Campus Celebration with Balloons

Opening Ceremonies

IPFW’s yearlong 50th Celebration kicked off with the Opening Ceremonies Monday, September 15.

Students, faculty, and staff joined together in the Walb Student Union Classic Ballroom from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m. for an on-campus celebration 50 years in the making.

Despite heavy winds and rain which caused the festivities to be moved inside, a special program featuring Chancellor Carwein, city and state officials, other dignitaries, and the IPFW Pep Band highlighted the event. Free food, live music, and free IPFW merchandise were also enjoyed by everyone.
