Summer Plans for Alumni
The Alumni Relations Office is energized and gearing up for a busy and exciting season!
Commencement and Celebration Weekend
On May 11, we will welcome 439 graduates into the Geneva College family of alumni! As I talk with these students, I am struck by their creativity and ingenuity. Some have already accepted positions as engineers, accountants and teachers, while others are heading off for graduate studies. Some are getting married, relocating and even accepting the call of entering the mission field. Wherever these soon-to-be alumni are going, their futures seem bright as they move forward with a solid Geneva College education. Along with the Commencement ceremonies taking place May 10 and 11, members of the classes of 1953 and 1963 have been invited to celebrate their reunions during Celebration Weekend.
Geneva Across America
After five years of dreaming and planning, the Geneva Across America team will leave from San Francisco on Monday, May 20 on a 3,708-mile, 10-week transcontinental bicycle trip. On May 18, the Alumni Office will help the team members get started with a kick-off dinner at the Olive Garden in Palo Alto, California, and we invite local alumni to join us. Through Geneva Across America, alumni, staff and friends of the college are raising money for an endowed scholarship for students in need. And alumni now have the option of finishing with the team on the “Cycle to the Sea” leg of the journey, riding from Pittsburgh to Bethany Beach, Delaware.

Alumni in Philadelphia...
We had a great time at the gathering in Philadelphia. The event was filled to capacity with over 40 alumni attending. Kudos to Crystal Arrington ’86 for all the hard work it took to make this event successful. Check out the pictures at http://www.geneva.edu/object/alumni_dinner_13.
