Calling All Vendors! Participate in the Alumnae Market

Alumnae Reunion Weekend is just around the corner!  Each year, we feature an Alumnae Market that highlights alumnae owned businesses. Some past vendors have included: Madie Deluxe, Polka Dot Dress, Olly Oxen, Two Dandy Lions, Southern Draw, and many others. This is a great way for attendees to shop and support other alumnae! 

This year’s Market will be held on Saturday, May 17 from 11:30 a.m. – 4 p.m. in the Rotunda of Johnson Hall. There is no fee to participate, and this does not have to be your reunion year. 

If you have an alumnae owned business and would like to be a part of this year’s Alumnae Market, please contact Hilary Allen at
