SCU Alumni Association moves forward with virtual events to mark the biggest parties of the year, safely.

It’s not often that a pandemic thwarts the biggest Bronco party of the year. But thwarted parties aren’t the Bronco way.

The Alumni Association is moving forward with events, and graduates of years ending in 0 or 5 will still have their reunion when it is safe to gather again. In the meantime, alumni can join as this year’s Grand Reunion moves online.

Opportunities for networking and reflection abound, including for small group conversations within special alumni networking groups, an examen with Jack Treacy, S.J., Mass with University President Kevin O’Brien, S.J., and a chance to support the Bronco Food Pantry.

That’s not the end of alumni events, of course. Vintage Santa Clara also moved online in September with a toast with the President, cooking sessions, mixology lessons, and guided tastings.
