Events & Reunions
Alumni gatherings allow former students to reconnect and once again enjoy one another’s company. In addition to reunions, receptions, and alumni events held both on and off the campus, alumni have enjoyed a series of Warrior Adventures over the past three years. Participants have visited the Detroit Zoo, Detroit Tigers games, the Detroit Cultural Center, and Downton Days at Rochester’s Meadow Brook Hall. Additional adventures will be announced in the future. Visit the Warrior Adventures website for information on both upcoming and past adventures.
Lake Norcentra Volunteer Day. In conjunction with the Lake Norcentra Park Project, the Alumni Association sponsors a lake cleanup day each spring. Alumni, students, and friends rake, trim, and remove fallen trees to make the area look great for summer. A continental breakfast and lunch are provided, and the day ends with ice cream! Over 80 volunteers assisted with the 2015 volunteer day. The next volunteer day is scheduled for Saturday, May 14, 2016.
Ice Cream Olympics. At the opening of each academic year, the Alumni Association hosts the Ice Cream Olympics to welcome the new student body. Alumni and students gather on the campus mall under a canopy of lights for an evening of ice cream, music, and fun. The 2015 event featured delicious Michigan-made ice cream from Guernsey Farms Dairy. The ice cream flavor selected for the completion by alumni from the 2000s, Scoopy Doo, earned the most votes in the tasting contest.
Decade Reunions. Over the past five years, very successful decade reunions have been planned and hosted for alumni from the 1960s and 1970s. Special Facebook groups have been developed for MCC 60s Alumni, MCC 70s Alumni, and MCC 80s Alumni. Anyone interested in serving on a reunion planning committee for later decades should contact Larry Stewart at email@example.com.
Special Reunions. Occasionally, various groups host special reunions for specific groups of alumni. For example, former choral singers of Paul Downey have participated in two reunions, former members of Autumn celebrated the group’s 25th anniversary with a reunion concert, and former basketball players gather occasionally for an alumni game. If you would be interested in organizing a special reunion, contact Larry Stewart at firstname.lastname@example.org.
