The UWRL also unveiled its new lobby, designed to reflect the legacy and works of past directors and influencers of the Water Lab. Guests who come to the UWRL will now be welcomed by plaques honoring past directors, a map of all the locations the UWRL has completed water research, and commissioned portraits of UWRL legends. Areas of focus are also highlighted in the lobby, with large pictures representing each area of expertise.

Homecoming began with self-guided tours and lunch, and ended up with the presentation of the new lobby and, of course, Aggie Ice Cream.

Blake Tullis, an Associate Director of the Utah Water Research Lab, said "The UWRL has been a formative time in a lot of people's lives, and I think people really enjoyed coming back and meeting with both old and new Water Lab associates".

The UWRL would like to thank everyone who came to Homecoming for a great event!
