Alumni Affairs 

MenuDear Alumni,    

What makes our alumni special?  One of the ways in which Caldwell College alumni stand out from alumni from other institutions is that Caldwell grads are known for giving back.  Whether they give financially through the college's Annual Fund, give of their time to serve on boards and committees, or give by supporting student activities and scholarships, the generosity of our alumni is abundant.  Thank you!

In the next few weeks, we are appealing to you to continue to give back.  A gift to the Annual Fund, no matter how small, will make a difference in the lives of our students.  Want to connect one-on-one with those students?  Join us as a site volunteer leader for the New Student Day of Service on August 24.  Want to help make a reunion year special?  Connect with us by sharing your ideas for the 2013 Homecoming and Family Weekend.  And finally, don't forget that Caldwell College will celebrate a major milestone -- our 75th Anniversary -- which will kick off in the fall of 2014, and you can play a major role in helping to make the events of the year special.

We hope to hear from you soon.  Thank you again for all you have done for Caldwell College!  
Jenny Mundell
Director of Alumni Affairs

Classmates of Mary Grassano Armstrong '69 donated to a memorial fund that was used to purchase a bench in front of Mother Joseph Residence Hall. Mary died in December of 2011 after a battle with cancer and her classmates organized a bench dedication and luncheon at the college on June 2. Mary's husband, children, and family joined classmates in sharing memories of her vivacious spirit.  The plaque on the bench will be an enduring testimony to the friendship she shared with classmates over many years.
