UW-L is celebrating its centennial during the 2009-10 academic year. There have been many obvious changes to the campus since the Normal School doors opened in 1909 but "academic excellence" has been a hallmark for all 100 years. There will be a number of activities scheduled during the year to help celebrate one event, including the Gala Celebration Saturday night, Oct. 24, in the Recreational Eagle Center. The event includes a meal, presentations, an AV show highlighting UW-L's 100 year history and the musical Big Band sounds of the Greg Balfany group.
