Tigers on Tour connects young alumni

Young alumni, from the previous 15 years, have a great opportunity to stay connected with the Doane community through Tigers on Tour events.

“It’s a good time to talk about Doane and for different years of alumni to learn from each other,” said Anne Golden Ziola, director of alumni relations.

Upcoming summer events include:

  • Dave & Buster’s in Omaha on June 15

  • Dinners with Tigers on June 29 and 30

  • Blazin’ Pianos in Lincoln on July 13

  • Dinners with Tigers on July 27 and 28

The dinners with Tigers will be smaller events hosted by young alumni and attended by about 10 others.

“Sometimes people don't want to go to big events,” Ziola said. “So we’re having more intimate events for those who want to get to the heart of the conversation with people.”

The alumni office is locating hosts for the special dinners.

Each event will be attended by one recent graduate and two current students.

  • Bekah Ehly '13 - Omaha

  • Cali Neuberger '14 - Omaha

  • Zak Karn '14 - Grand Island

“I wanted to be a Tiger on Tour because I thought not only traveling for the summer would be fun, but meeting alumni and seeing what Doane was like before I was here would be cool,” Neuberger said. “The point of our job is to encourage alumni to give back whether it be donating their skills, time or money to continue Doane’s advancement and support students on campus now.”

Neuberger and her fellow Tigers on Tour will mingle with alumni and share about what is happening at Doane.

“(Alumni) want to hear it from the Tiger’s mouth,” Ziola said. “They really take to heart what students say.”
