Whether your graduation is right around the corner or your 10-year reunion is approaching this May, it is our goal to educate, engage, and excite students and young alumni about the meaningful ways in which you can maintain lifelong connections and take deep pride in being an Arcadia Knight!
The countdown to Commencement is on! As you prepare for alumni life, celebrate this special time in your student experience with traditions exclusively for graduating students.
Old Traditions, New Beginnings:
Tie-Dye & Treats
Kick off your final year with a festive way to celebrate with friends and enjoy a tasty treat!
The Arcadia Class of 2022 kicked off Homecoming & Family Weekend with their Tie-Dye & Treats event. Over ninety students came out to the Blankley Alumni House lawn, excited for their first opportunity to gather with their classmates in celebration of their senior year. Students enthusiastically greeted friends as they picked up their commemorative Class of 2022 t-shirts, tie-dyed, and enjoyed a tasty treat from the Hardy Funnel Cake food truck.
A similar event was hosted for the Class of 2021 last spring, and given the success of the series, the Office of Alumni Engagement plans to make Tie-Dye and Treats an annual tradition for the graduating class.
As the Class of 2022 prepares to become alumni this year, the event is just the first of many programs designed to build class affinity and introduce graduating students to the benefits of lifelong engagement with their alma mater.
