Updated Program Information

This past year has presented challenges and opportunities. We cancelled the 2020 fall alumni reunion and rescheduled it to this spring as an all virtual event; which provided the opportunity (along with a generous donation from an anonymous donor) to invite all alumni back for an open house at no cost.

We are excited to welcome all of our alumni classes back to campus to reconnect with classmates and faculty, renew friendships, meet current students, and see how the school has grown via the virtual WHOVA event platform (look for a message on April 16 in your email inbox on record with instructions on how to participate)
