Redefining the Classroom

Great Lake State Weekend

Detailed Schedule of Events

Friday October 26, 2012

Whenever you arrive, stop by the lobby of Cisler Center to pick up your information packet at the Registration Desk.
We’ll be there 10am to 6:45pm Friday and 8am to 5pm Saturday to check people in, register last-minute guests and answer
any questions you may have.

Starting at 5 pm, head over to Lukenda Alumni House for the Alumni Tailgate party. Members of the LSSU Alumni Board will be cooking chili, grilling hot dogs and pulling together other homemade grub for Laker alumni and their families.

Now is your chance to Meet LSSU President Tony McLain and his wife Missy . They will be at our Tailgate party. Stop by, say hello, give him some feedback of what you think is good, bad or crazy about Lake State today. He will listen.

This is a great place to gather pre-game to get pumped up for the 7:35pm hockey game vs. MSU’s Spartans. Soft drinks are provided and adults can BYOB. Special guests at the Tailgate will be Alumni Award recipients and LSSU faculty, past & present.

Catch the inaugural Laker Homecoming parade as it passes by Alumni House around 6:15 pm or meet them in the Norris parking lot
at 6:30 pm for free hotdogs & cookies at the Pep Rally!

Reserve your tickets now for the first of the two-game hockey series against Michigan State University! You can reserve your tickets as part of your GLSW registration; call the ticket office directly at 906-635-2602;

If you reserve your tickets with the Norris Ticket office, tell them that you're an alum to get seated in special alumni seating in section N!

The puck drops at 7:35pm to open the CCHA season.

Don’t run off after the game - free ice cream will be served in the Taffy Abel Arena post-game, sponsored by Student Alumni Involved for Lake State (SAILS).


Alumni are invited to gather at Zim's (site of the Old Pioneer Club) after the game.
