Alumni Newsletter - 

Two hundred and forty incoming students were welcomed into the Servite family at the 10th annual Freshman Formation Weekend July 25 -27th. Formation Director Larry Toner and Director of Leadership Programs Chris Weir '97 coordinated the weekend. Students were involved in physical, spiritual, academic, and team-building exercises that introduced them to finding "Who God called them to be." Students were organized into priories they will be in for their four years at Servite to begin experiencing the Servite brotherhood. 


The first Alumni Networking Social will be August 12, 5:30- 7:30 pm at the Summit House Restaurant in Fullerton thanks to Bruce McDonald '73. Alumni involved in the reestablishment of the Servite Alumni Association have expressed a high priority for getting Servite grads who own their own businesses or are in management positions of publicly-held or privately-owned businesses, together for the mutual benefit of all. RSVP by August 7 to Marc Woods '65, Director of Alumni Relations: [email protected].
