Regional Clubs Go Big

April 15, 2016 | by the Office of Marketing and Communications

The Elmhurst College community encompasses more than 23,000 alumni, parents and friends across the globe.

Wherever you live, the College offers numerous ways for you to reconnect, engage with the College and get to know today’s Elmhurst students.

In the past six months the Elmhurst College Alumni Association has hosted monthly events in the Chicagoland area as well as across the nation. In the fall, we held two events in the St. Louis area, with more than 30 alumni in attendance.

In February, more than 80 alumni attended receptions throughout Florida. Gatherings took place in Orlando, Tampa, Sarasota and Naples. Barbara Lucks ’73, chair of the College’s Board of Trustees, hosted the Naples event. On March 14, more than 40 alumni gathered in Arizona to watch the Cubs compete in spring training. Later that week, alumni in the New York area joined us at Carnegie Hall for a rousing performance by the Elmhurst College Choir.

On April 28, alumni in the Washington, D.C., area are invited to attend a reception at Café Dupont. Special guests at this event will include current Elmhurst College students who are spending the semester in Washington, D.C. Finally, on May 15 we will host a gathering for alumni in Atlanta at Maggiano’s Little Italy in Dunwoody.
