Alumni Features

We enjoy highlighting life updates and stories about our alumni on social media. Often labeled as "Friday Features" or "Alumni Spotlights," we try to post a new story at least once a week on our Facebook page, as well as on Instagram and Twitter (oftentimes with less text due to character restrictions).

If you know an alum that we should feature, share with us here.
