Seven things you might not know about the SCU Alumni Association

Summer is here and it’s time to relax, rejuvenate, and refresh. In addition to checking off your list of favorite things to do on vacation, see how well you know your alma mater.

1. There are 94,000 Broncos living in more than 80 countries around the world.

Chances are, no matter where you live, you can find a fellow Bronco right in your neighborhood.

2. We throw the biggest student graduation picnic in the country.

Last month, we hosted more than 6,000 graduates, family members, and friends as they celebrated one of the happiest days in their lives.

3. Broncos love hiring Broncos …

Connect with nearly 50,000 Broncos on LinkedIn and join our official Santa Clara University & Alumni Association group for targeted networking and compelling content from respected SCU thought leaders. scu.edu/linkedin

4. … And we help alumni with career challenges and transitions.

Check out our online webinars, regional branding events, and other alumni career resources while getting advice directly from SCU Career Center professionals. scu.edu/alumni/career-resources

5. Grand Reunion Weekend turned 5 years old in 2013!

The weekend-long celebration welcomes over 4,000 Broncos and friends for a picnic, a petting zoo, a 5K run, sporting events, class parties, school receptions, educational presentations, and more. Everyone is welcome, so join us during the second weekend in October for our biggest and best alumni party of the year! scu.edu/reunions

6. We have a dog. He’s been to the Arctic.

Come visit us at the Donohoe Alumni House, meet old friends, enjoy a lounge just for alumni, and say hello to our canine companion.

7. The Mission Campus is as beautiful as you remember … maybe even more so.

Did you know that Alviso Street—in front of the Mission Church and the Donohoe Alumni House leading to Benson—is being transformed this summer into another new brick pedestrian walkway? Stay connected and up to date on our lovely campus. scu.edu/alumnisocial

So even though your days might be filled with sunscreen and flip-flops this summer, don’t forget to think about reconnecting with the people and places that make Santa Clara University special for you. We’re here to help you relax, rejuvenate, and refresh all year long. Hope to see you soon.

Go Broncos!
