Originally begun in 1889, the Geneva College Alumni Association was formed for the purpose of advancing the interests of the college, to promote camaraderie among alumni and to strengthen the relationship between graduates and the college. In cooperation with the Geneva Alumni Council, the Board of Trustees of Geneva College recently approved the reconstitution of the Alumni Association with the intention of increasing participation by alumni. All graduates of Geneva College are granted membership in the Alumni Association and are considered voting members.
The representative body for the Alumni Association is the Geneva Alumni Council. The Alumni Council encourages all Alumni Association members to participate in the organization, starting with casting a vote for the new Alumni Association logo. Alumni are invited to click here and complete the four-question survey.
