The main event will be the grand opening of the Alumni Center in Old O’Connor Hall at 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 10. This former student residence hall has been transformed into a modern space that brings the University’s history and traditions to life, while hosting events that will create new and lasting memories.

Accomplished alumni and faculty will stimulate your curiosity during the session “Making Waves: Mind-Blowing Breakthroughs in Neuroscience.”
• The traditional tailgate party will take place beginning at 3 p.m. Saturday, in the Events Center parking lot, leading into the 6 p.m. men’s soccer game in the Bearcats Sports Complex against UMass-Lowell. The Boston-based rock/pop/electronic band Magic Man will perform on the concert stage at Tailgate ’15. Campus departments that would like to participate in Tailgate must register online to reserve a space by Thursday, Oct. 1.
