You're almost good as GOLD

Your friends in the Seattle Pacific University Alumni Association are thrilled for you as you soon become GOLD alumni and embark on the next leg of life’s journey. May God bless and prosper you!

Be sure to take full advantage of the alumni benefits and opportunities that are yours when you become SPU alumni. Check this important to-do list as you count down the days:

Join your classmates at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, June 10, in the Fifth Avenue Streetscape for Falcons Forever — SPU’s celebration barbecue for seniors and their families. Save the date, register here, and watch for more information!

Polish your résumé with help from the Center for Career and Calling. And don’t forget, alumni are always welcome to use all of the Center for Career and Calling’s resources. From career events to employer connections, these resources are available to you throughout your entire career.

Join our online community! Network with fellow alums on LinkedIn, like the SPU Alumni Facebook page, and follow @SPUGOLDalumni on Instagram to stay connected with your alma mater and classmates. Be sure to Tweet and Instagram your final moments as a student. Use #SPUgrad2016 (after your last final!).

Email your favorite professor or stop by your Alumni Association Office and write a card to say, “Thanks for the memories and for all you did!”

Grand Reunion

Mark your calendars for Grand Reunion Weekend October 7–8, 2016, for your “zero” year reunion. Plus, you can JOIN your class committee!

We have for you a free graduation gift, an SPU MiiR coffee tumbler, and wish to congratulate you in person. To get yours, stop by and visit us in the Office of Alumni and Parent Relations in the Walls Advancement Center.

The Senior Fair is a time dedicated to checking everything off your to-do list for graduation. Pick up your cap and gown, secure your graduation tickets, get job search tips, receive your MiiR Tumbler graduation gift from the Alumni Association, write thank-you cards to professors, and more. The event is May 17, 3–6 p.m., in Upper Gwinn.

The 2016 Senior Gift Committee has elected to help fund the restoration and installation of two rare paintings by African American artist Charles Ethan Porter that were generously donated to the Perkins Center. While this is the 2016 Senior Gift, we encourage anyone who feels moved to donate to do so since it will impact all class levels, faculty, and staff. Make your donation.
