Hundreds of alumni and friends braved snowy weather to return to campus for Alumni Day 2016 on Saturday, Jan. 23. Highlights of the day included the annual Winter Carnival, a SURE anniversary reception, a Mass and Luncheon for Pillar Society members and an Open Science Lab, hosted by faculty members. Alumni also toured the renovated Sports Complex and cheered the men’s and women’s basketball teams on to victory.
Evening Division Honored
Nearly 2,000 students graduated from the Evening Division Program, and, with the dedication of a commemorative plaque on Alumni Day, the College honored their achievements as students and alumni.
In his remarks, President John Denning, C.S.C., who blessed the plaque, said, “It is our hope that this plaque will serve as a reminder to all in the Stonehill community that we are a place of learning, and we look to instill in our students the traits that our Evening Division students have exemplified in their pursuit of learning.”
Many Evening Division alumni attended the unveiling and blessing of the plaque, which is on display in the lobby of Alumni Hall.
