Reunion Theme: Great Ife Reloaded: Old Challenges, New Opportunities
Keynote Speech: "From Seductive Ovation to Messianic Oration: A Pyramid of Minds"
Keynote Speaker: Professor Toyin Falola
Welcome to the 2014 Reunion information center for the Great Ife Alumni Association. The Reunion is to be held at the Hilton DFW Lakes in Grapevine, Texas from Friday August 29th to Sunday August 31st 2014.
Our hope is to accomplish the twin objective of successfully hosting the 8th Reunion, and re-launching the Endowment Fund for the University. Hence, we have chosen the theme "Great Ife Reloaded: Old Challenges, New Opportunities”.
We will feature knowledgeable individuals with exposure to Nigeria and top ranked American Universities to give us insight to some of the challenges that would have to be managed. Our Vice Chancellor is also expected to address the local issues and opportunities that would have to be incorporated into any planning. The role of the Alumni in attaining our goal will also be presented.
Remembering that our motto is For Learning and Culture, we will not make it all serious and forget to entertain participants. We have planned tours to places of interest in the Dallas/Fort-Worth Area.
The event will be wrapped up with a banquet including a party that we hope would bring back good old memories and rekindle old spirits.

This is a great opportunity to rekindle old relationships, create new ones, and enjoy yourself, all at the same time.
