Southeastern Alumni Roadshow travels to McCurtain County May 16

DURANT, Okla. – Southeastern Oklahoma State University’s 2013 McCurtain County Roadshow is coming to the Idabel Country Club on Thursday, May 16.

All Southeastern alumni are encouraged to attend the event from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Approximately 1,900 residents of McCurtain County are Southeastern alumni.

Following the Thursday “Gathering of Graduates,” golfers will tee off Friday at the Idabel Country Club for the 4th-annual Southeastern Golf Classic.

The fun of the McCurtain County Roadshow is when Southeastern graduates and those who attended the University reconnect with each other, pick up new information and have lots of fun.

“The Southeastern Alumni in McCurtain County are an important part of Southeastern’s heritage,” said Stephanie Davison, Director of Alumni Relations. “It is interesting to find out how they have taken their Southeastern education and built their lives around that start. And, of course, they are really fun to be with.”

All Southeastern alumni in McCurtain County are invited to participate in the 2013 Roadshow to enjoy an evening of fun and tall tales while reconnecting with fellow Southeastern alumni.
