  •  Grand Reunion Weekend Spotlight: School Receptions and Department Open Houses

    Friday, Jul. 29, 2011

    One of the best things about Grand Reunion is the way in which it brings together many different parts of Santa Clara to show alumni exactly why they made the right decision in choosing to come here all those years ago.  No longer centered around class parties on Saturday night, Grand Reunion is a weekend full of opportunities for Broncos to engage not only with classmates and fellow alumni, but also with the schools and departments that were such an instrumental part of their educational experience.

    Since the Grand Reunion’s inception in 2009, the Saturday evening school receptions have emerged as some of the most enjoyed events of the weekend.  These receptions serve not only as a great start to the evening for the reunion classes who will head off to their parties afterwards, but also as a wonderful celebration of the relationships forged between hardworking students and the faculty and staff who supported them in their scholastic endeavors.  The College of Arts and Sciences, the Leavey School of Business, the School of Education and Counseling Psychology, and the School of Engineering will all welcome their former students for drinks and appetizers, whether they are celebrating a class reunion or not.  So, don’t miss out!  Make these receptions a destination during the reunion weekend and enjoy this opportunity to mix and mingle with fellow majors and graduates of your school.

    Some departments have decided to take things a bit further and open their doors to former students at various times during the reunion weekend: Chemistry and Biochemistry, Political Science, Theatre and Dance, and Communication will host Open Houses, and more departments will be added to the list as Grand Reunion approaches.  Take advantage of this chance to reconnect with these departments in a more intimate setting and stop by to say hi! 

    Go Broncos!

  •  Celebrating the Bronco Legacy

    There is a noticeable spark in the air this week as Santa Clara University’s class of 2011 prepares to leave the campus they have called home for the past four years and enter into what those of us in the know call “the real world”.  The Alumni Association is proud to welcome the newest members of the alumni family and congratulates all graduates on a job well done.

    There will, no doubt, be a few Bronco parents among the well-wishers in the stands this weekend gazing proudly at their sons and daughters while reminiscing about their own graduation from SCU.  This intergenerational relationship with SCU is an excellent expression of the institution’s impact on its alumni: Their love for Santa Clara is so deep that they wanted their children to experience it for themselves.  And so, on graduation day, these moms, dads, and grads celebrate the impact of Santa Clara’s legacy on their lives.

    These families will have another opportunity to rejoice in October during the Grand Reunion Weekend, a celebration of the enduring bonds that exist between classmates and the university.  These links were created by a common experience that is also dynamic and unique to each class, and the graduating class is the newest testament to the value and importance of a Santa Clara education.  We hope to see these families back on campus in the fall, blessing us with their presence and honoring the university with their commitment to its legacy of competence, conscience, and compassion.

    Go Broncos!
