We hope to see everyone at the 2016 debate reunion. This year, our online registration can be found on the MSU Foundation website. All alumni should have received BOTH a mailed invite (mid April) AND multiple save-the-date notices (from early fall 2015) via our Constant Contact email list. If you didn't, we may need to update our mailing list. Please head to the Reunion 2016 link (even if not able to attend) to provide us with updated information.
The 2016 Debate Reunion is scheduled for May 13-14, 2016. The $50/person registration covers all events, except the May 14th wine tasting.
Alumni can register online from this page (or by calling the Communication Department at 417-836-4423).
Please register as soon as possible, and by May 9, 2016 at the latest. If you need to alter your registration, just register again and just mark fields that change (or, email Dr. Eric Morris). There is not a hotel block this year, but we encourage out of town visitors to look at the MSU visitors page for the hotels link. The closest hotels for the Saturday event are the University Plaza, Holiday Inn, Walnut Street B&B, and the newly renovated Hotel Vandivort. The first three are walking distance to the Tower Club - the Vandivort is a few blocks. We are atop MSU graduation, so booking hotels early is recommended.
