MACOMB, IL - The School Psychology program at Western Illinois University will celebrate its 50th anniversary with a reunion during Homecoming 2018, with most of the activities happening Saturday, Sept. 29.

All alumni of the program are welcome attend, with their families, and reminisce with friends and faculty.

WIU alumni will gather at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Alumni House on Adams Street to watch the parade as a group. Free coffee and doughnuts will be served at 9:30 p.m.

Prior to the Homecoming football game, an informal gathering will be held from 1-2:30 p.m. Saturday in Waggoner Hall, room 170. Three of the program's former coordinators, retired faculty Tom Fagan, Paula Wise and Ruth Kelly, will give an interactive presentation, "Recalling the History of School Psychology at WIU," which will facilitate alumni sharing experiences from across the decades.

During the presentation, graduate students will provide babysitting services and cake will be served to celebrate the anniversary.

Waggoner Hall will also be open for self-guided tours throughout the afternoon.

Then, from 5-8 p.m. Saturday, an "Until We See You Again" reception will be held at Taylor's Hall in downtown Macomb, 125 S. Randolph St. Light appetizers will be provided and beverages can be purchased at the connecting Wine Sellers or Sullivan Taylor Coffee House.
