This spring will mark 100 years since the disgrace of our beloved Hot Feet and the birth of the I.M.P. Society. We are calling every I.M.P., near and far, to return to Grounds the weekend of March 22nd – 24th, 2013 for a weekend full of revelry, conviviality, and joviality.
The weekend will begin with a reception on Friday followed by activities throughout the day on Saturday. The big event will be the evening of Saturday, March 23 when we regroup to take to the streets for a Grand March and an IMPerial Banquet where we will dance the night away. For all those with IMPressive stamina, we will host a brunch the following Sunday morning.
We believe this weekend will be both an opportunity for us to celebrate our Centennial and a chance to rally for a cause to benefit the University. We plan to give a gift back to the University this weekend that will go towards a cause that serves the larger community. In the coming weeks, more information will be available about this cause, and ways to give back.
Registration for this event is now closed.
