  • 2013 MPLS Reunion Picnic Great Success

    Posted: Jun 30, 2013

    The Alumni and Friends of Price Laboratory School continued the annual tradition of an all-class summer reunion picnic on June 29, 2013, during the Sturgis Falls Celebration. Although the Malcolm Price Laboratory School building was in the process of being demolished, the Nielsen Fieldhouse remains standing and MPLS planners hope to continue to hold the picnic in the Field House for years to come. 

    In addition to the wonderful lunch, the camaraderie with classmates and renewal of long-time friendships, this year's reunion also featured the opening of the time capsule from the early 1950s that was sealed in the building's cornerstone for 60 years. 

    The program also included a brief presentation of the MPLS History Website. Alumni and former MPLS faculty were encouraged to register their own personal memories of MPLS.  Over the next years, the site will continue to grow and develop as more research is conducted and the expanding UNI archival collections related to MPLS are reviewed for inclusion in the site.
