Alums to host Senior Social Dec. 12

With the end of the first semester just around the corner senior class events are beginning to get underway for upcoming graduates.  On the list of events for the class of 2013 is the Senior Social, which will be held on Dec. 12 in the 1787 room from 7-8 p.m.

“It’s a welcome to those graduating into the Alumni Association,” said Alumni Association President Stephanie Blackwood.

The event is an opportunity for seniors to socialize with some of Castleton’s alumni and learn more about the association. There is no RSVP necessary and Blackwood encourages all graduates to attend, establish connections, enjoy refreshments, and take their chance at winning door prizes, which include a Kindle Fire.

Though Blackwood and a few of Castleton’s deans intend to speak, she claims the speeches will be kept to minimum and she describes the event as, “mainly a social time.”

Those graduates who do get involved with the Alumni Association will become familiar with their tradition of providing gifts to Castleton’s incoming freshman class each fall as well as the scholarship they award to one student each year.

To help fund these efforts, the Alumni Association is currently sponsoring a quilt raffle. A date for the raffle has not been set but will be announced once it is decided.

“We want to be sure we reached everybody,” Blackwood said.

            The quilt is on display in the library and all those interested are to contact Blackwood to purchase a ticket.
