IPFW Alumni now Mastodon Alumni
Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne’s alumni association will now be known as the Mastodon Alumni Association. The new name was announced Thursday night at the 19th annual Mastodon Roast at the Steel Dynamics Keith E. Busse IPFW Alumni Center.
The Mastodon Alumni Association is open to anyone who has taken classes on the IPFW campus, regardless of whether their degree is from Indiana University or Purdue University.
Indiana and Purdue universities formed IPFW in 1964 but are separating. Under a realignment process, Purdue will take over full operation of the university and its campus, 2101 Coliseum Blvd. E. The Purdue Board of Trustees in April approved a resolution to change the name of IPFW to Purdue University Fort Wayne. The naming will take effect with the July 1 realignment. In April officials said the school colors with remain blue and white and the nickname, Mastodons, will continue. Those elements are reflected in the new alumni logo.
