ALMA COLLEGE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION
 
Office of Alumni Engagement
Greetings!

THANK YOU for being a part of the Alma College family.  In this time of giving thanks, I think of the many ways that each of you have touched this College.  I'm grateful for every one of you who has:
  • interacted in the learning process as a student, staff or faculty member, parent, or friend of the College 
  • told a prospective student about a positive Alma experience
  • shared an internship, job or other learning opportunity
  • provided feedback to help us continually improve  
  • supported the College financially 
  • cheered on Scots sports teams, music groups, Model UN and other public performances 
  • been engaged in any other way that I have forgotten to mention!

We're starting what is often considered the busiest season of the year.  I wish you all a wonderful season of connecting with family and friends!
