Alumni of Distinction

The Alumni of Distinction honor recognizes just a few of the thousands of alumni who have made significant contributions to society, and whose accomplishments, affiliations, and careers have honored the legacy of excellence at the college. This honor illustrates the great value of the academic experience and increases the pride alumni, students, staff, and faculty have for the college. 

We hope you will join us at the Alumni of Distinction Presentation of Honors on Friday, September 28, 2018 where we will celebrate the 2018 Alumni of Distinction honorees.  For more information and to register for this event, click here.
