Campbell alumni volunteers host first inaugural #CampbellReunion0

The Office of Alumni Engagement, with the help of alumni volunteers, held its newest alumni event, #CampbellReunion0, on Saturday, May 12.  You might be asking yourself, “what’s a reunion zero?” Simply put, we didn’t want the Class of 2018 to have to wait until 2028  for a 10-year class reunion. So, we decided to introduce an official alumni celebration immediately following graduation!

The first of two events, “Donuts for Graduates,” included alumni volunteers serving Sherry’s Bakery donuts, water, and juice to the Class of 2018 as they entered McCall Court. Campbell alumni value opportunities to come back to campus to interact with and encourage students – and this pre-graduation event never disappoints. We hope that their smiling faces (and sweet treats) helped to add excitement to this special day at Campbell University!

After graduation, members of the Class of 2018 were officially welcomed to the alumni family at their #CampbellReunion0 celebration.  Alumni volunteers were positioned just in front of the John W. Pope Jr. Convocation Center and provided opportunities for graduates to take a photo with Gaylord the Camel and mark where they are headed next on our alumni map.  Custom Campbell alumni photo frames were also available for graduates to take home to hold a favorite graduation memory.
