The Surcie Shop

Stop in the Surcie Shop to pick up that special item that says “I’m thinking of you!”  and support your Alumnae Association.

Champagne Brunch

Join fellow alumnae, families and students for lunch in the Student Union.  Remember what it was like to go through the line? We invite you to grab a plate and make your way through the various stations (see what Chef Alesha Zimmer has cooked up for the main dish; and visit Darryl who has been here for 19 years, serving up the best at the daily special grill). Then, grab a table for conversation with your friends and find out about student life, today!

Walk away with a finished painting and memories to last throughout the year!
