The Caldwell College Athletics Hall of Fame will induct its fifth class this fall, and they are accepting your nominations!

Dear Alumni,
Last weekend our alumni ranks grew by 463 new members. For many of us, this time of year is full of excitement mixed with the anticipation of new beginnings. For our recent graduates and their families, it is a time of jubilation and planning for the next step. We offer a hearty congratulations to those graduates and their families.

For Caldwell College, come July 1, we will start to refer to ourselves as Caldwell University, an occasion that also marks the beginning of an exciting time here. In September, we will continue to celebrate university status as well as our 75th anniversary. In the meantime, we'll be busy planning new events and programming to keep our alumni connected. We look forward to seeing you when we kick off the 2014/15 academic year at our 75th Anniversary and Homecoming events beginning September 19 and 20.  

Finally, as we close out this academic year, I hope you will consider making a gift to the Caldwell College Annual Fund.  Your support, at any level, helps the college rankings (which strengthens the power of your degree) and has the ability to change the lives of our students. Make your gift online today.

Congratulations again to the 2014 graduates!

Director, Alumni Affairs

HikeAlumni Enjoy Hike in Hartshorne Woods Park

Caldwell's outdoor enthusiasts alumni and their families enjoyed a great day hiking in Hartshorne Woods Park, which is a part of the Monmouth County Park system. This group of  alumni are planning on meeting for another hike soon. 

With June 30 just a few weeks away, we're in the last days of our fiscal year. That means your gifts to the Annual Fund are more important than ever.

We have 32 days to raise resources that will enable us to best serve our students in the coming academic year. Donations from alumni like you are especially critical because they also increase the value of every Caldwell degree -- including yours. 

Make your gift online before June 30 because our students deserve the best -- and so do you.
