On Friday, February 5, a group of young alumni gathered at Fairview Manor. The purpose of this evening was to provide an opportunity for recent Cairn University alumni to network with one another, professionally and socially, and to reconnect with much loved professors.
With a packed out Fairview Manor and people totaling close to 50, the first half of the evening was spent mingling and enjoying refreshments. Cairn President Todd Williams and his wife, Dawn, stopped by to welcome everybody to the event and catch up with former students, friends, and faculty.
Alumni Director Nate Wambold kicked off the evening by talking about a variety of alumni opportunities and benefits and mentioned new opportunities for online giving. Following this, everyone retired to the living room to partake in a panel discussion, featuring Cairn professors, Dr. Keith Plummer and Dr. Brenda Ebersole ’03, and “seasoned” alumni, Tim ’89 and Amy (Lacock) ’89 Bouffard.
It was clear that the alumni were overjoyed to spend time with the professors. Their ongoing interaction with alumni and the support they have been providing for recent graduates has been a tremendous encouragement.
There were free t-shirts, and admissions recruiters were also available for conversation with alumni about Cairn’s graduate programs.
The Alumni Office hopes to continue this kind of event, as well as variations upon it in order to do everything possible to try to meet the needs of the recent graduates and provide ways for them to remain connected to their alma mater.
