This newly designed event for seniors approaching commencement (Fall, Winter or Spring quarters) offers students an opportunity to meet Alumni Board members and Alumni Office staff. It is part of a larger program that introduces students, from freshman year on, with all the alumni association offers. It also lays out the role of an alumnus (be an ambassador for MSOE; volunteer to serve as mentor/employer; visit campus and/or attend events; contribute time and talent.) A 3-part program, the fall event is a complimentary, casual dinner that is strictly social in nature. The winter event is more structured and includes a formal presentation about The Role of an Alumnus. Spring quarter uses the traditional Senior Reception to congratulate graduates and their families.
