Join OU alumni and friends in the Windy City on Friday, February 21 to cheer on the men’s basketball teams as they face the University of Illinois Chicago (UIC).  The Oakland University Alumni Association (OUAA) will host a pre-game dinner gathering for alumni in the Chicago area as well as alumni and fans traveling from Michigan. 

The OUAA dinner is scheduled from 4:30 to 6 p.m. CST at Jak’s Tap at 901 W. Jackson Boulevard, just a short distance from campus.  The men’s game will follow at 7 p.m. CST.

There is no cost to attend, but registration is required.  You may register to attend both the dinner and game, or just the dinner.  Space is limited.  Pending availability, the deadline to register is Friday, February 14.  Game tickets will be available to pick-up at the dinner event.

Parking at Jak’s Tap is available for a fee both on the street and at a public parking lot across the street from the restaurant.  Parking at the UIC Pavilion is available for $5 per vehicle, and directions and parking information can be found at the pavilion’s website.  The distance from Jak’s to the UIC Pavilion is walkable (about 3-4 blocks), pending weather conditions.

In addition, for those of you traveling from outside the Chicago area, the Chicago Marriott at UIC is located on campus just a few blocks from the pavilion.  Information on the hotel can be found here, or call (312) 491-1234 for more information.
