A warm-weather learning escape

In IU’s Bicentennial year, join alumni and friends for Winter College—an educational and IU spirit-filled weekend in sunny Naples, Fla. This year, spend two days learning, sharing, and hearing from IU’s finest, including:

David Hoffmann, BS’90
CEO of Dunkin’ Brands Group Inc.

Charlie Nelms, MS’71, EdD’77, LHD’19­
Chancellor emeritus of Indiana University East

Paul Tash, BA’76

Winter College 2020 will take place February 8 & 9, in Naples, Fla, at LaPlaya Beach & Golf Resort.

Along with presentations by notable IU alumni and faculty, this two-day event features a Kelley School of Business panel, poolside happy hour, a plated-dinner reception on Saturday, and a Sunday brunch.

Getting to Naples early? Don’t miss IU professor emeritus Ron Osgood’s pre-event screening of his documentary, Just Like Me: Vietnam War Stories from All Sides, followed by a Q&A. Tickets for this Saturday morning session are available only to IUAA members.
