The cost for the bulb replacement was funded by the University of Nevada, Reno Alumni Association.
“Turning our famous Reno Arch blue shows the town’s support for our Wolf Pack teams and generates great community spirit,” advises Mayor Bob Cashell. “Reno is a true University Town.”
Don’t forget the inaugural Nevada Wolf Pack March from the Arch will be held in downtown Reno on October 25, 2013 and will celebrate the University, alumni and their families and the City of Reno. The March from the Arch will feature University homecoming floats, the marching band and various alumni and businesses in the community marching up Virginia Street at 7:30 p.m., to the University quad for a pep rally and lighting of the “Burning Wolf”.
The City of Reno strives to enhance the quality of life for our community by promoting a sustainable and vibrant economy.
The Reno City Council wants to remind, encourage, and challenge the community to participate in Wolf Pack Fridays by wearing UNR clothing on Fridays.
