Representatives of Pacific Union College traveled far and wide over the last few weeks, hosting a series of summer events bringing alumni together across the country.
On Monday, August 3, PUC hosted a booth and an ice cream party at the 2012 Teachers’ Convention of the North American Division of Seventh-day Adventists, held this year at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel and Convention Center in Nashville, Tenn. Over 120 alumni attended to reconnect, reminisce, and enjoy a free ice cream sundae in the Southern summer heat.
“It was a blast to see alumni from all over the continent,” says Connie Philips, ’02, PUC’s advancement director, who helped host the event.
The next evening Carolyn Hamilton, ’81, PUC’s interim vice president for advancement, hosted an intimate gathering for local alumni in Chattanooga, Tenn. President Heather J. Knight and Pastor Norman Knight visited with invitees, many of whom were eager to meet the president and hear news from the college.
On Monday, August 13, Philips and a group of local alumni met in Berrien Springs, Mich., for a casual dinner party at Roma’s Pizzeria.
“It was not the pizza dinner that made the evening special—though the pizza was good—but the chance to see former students and friends,” said Verlyn Benson, ‘76. “I appreciate PUC's efforts to help connect those of us who have spent so many years on the PUC campus, but no longer have the opportunity to live there.”
