A Note From the AASC

Alumni Association Steering Committee

We hope that you are enjoying your summer and are taking some time to relax and unwind. We’re happy to report that Alumni Weekend was a huge success. With perfect weather and the addition of two new events—a Former Faculty Breakfast and the Alumni Art Show—almost 200 Springers returned to campus! If you were able to attend, we hope that you enjoyed the weekend, made some new connections, and rekindled some old ones. If you weren’t able make it back, be sure to check out the pictures of the weekend HERE and mark your calendars for alumni and all-school events coming up this fall, including FriendsFest and the annual Alumni Soccer Games & Turkey Trot 5K.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
