alumni talk on patioMore than 125 UAB Collat School of Business alumni, faculty, staff and guests celebrated the university’s 50th anniversary with a party on the new Blazer Pride Plaza this week.

Alumni from every decade enjoyed BBQ from Carlile's, beer and wine, popsicles from Steel City Pops and free 50th Anniversary t-shirts while meeting old and new friends outside the new Collat School of Business building.

Even the new bronze Blaze sculpture, donated by alumnus Ken Jackson, got into the spirit with festive anniversary headgear. The after-work event allowed alumni to mingle with old and new faculty in all departments and to catch up with staff and advisors.

More alumni events are planned, and Collat alumni are encouraged to join one of Collat's UAB National Alumni Society's chapters to stay involved.
