14th Annual Mastodon Roast - Event Recap

Almost 400 IPFW alumni, faculty, and friends joined the IPFW Alumni Association for the 14th Annual Mastodon Roast. Guests were treated to a gourmet buffet dinner featuring apple cobbler and carved hog while they had the opportunity to meet our new chancellor, Vicky Carwein. Thank you to everyone who made an effort to attend this signature event.
In keeping with Mastodon Roast tradition, guests were treated to a surprise reveal by being the first to view the brand new (completed just hours before the roast) Alumni Center Donor Wall. It was a huge hit!
