Experience / Events / Bruce-a-palooza


Grab your party hats because ASI is throwing a celebration in honor of outgoing President and CEO, Bruce Karstadt. This one-of-a-kind festival includes campus-wide activities, exhibitions, and food and drink specials from FIKA Café, with surprises sprinkled throughout the day. Including exclusive Bruce-themed swag and experiences, ASI’s iconic inflatable dala horse Cardamom, and much more! Join ASI in honoring more than 30 years of Bruce’s leadership. Advanced registration is required.

The ASI community is invited to submit video notes or regards to Bruce to be shown on a screen during Bruce-a-palooza. Videos should be under 2 minutes in length and submitted to [email protected] by April 24. Please include “Video Note to Bruce” in the email subject line.
