From the Alumnae Association President

I just attended my 25th reunion, and it was such a treat to be back on campus with so many classmates! It was wonderful to reconnect in person and to nourish those relationships in a deeper way than interactions on social media allow. And it was fun to meet folks from other class years, knowing that no matter our age or background, our Scripps experience binds us together.

I was honored to emcee Reunion Weekend convocation and to introduce the winners of the Outstanding Recent Alumna, Distinguished Alumna, and Volunteer of the Year awards. You can watch the entire program, including the recipients’ speeches, by visiting alumnae.scrippscollege.edu. Their stories are inspiring, and they remind us all of the power of a Scripps education.

In March, I attended the Unleashing Potential event in San Francisco. I know I’m lucky to live in an area with a critical mass of Scripps alums, where College events are regularly hosted. But what about those of you who don’t live in major Scripps hubs—or in the U.S. at all? You may not be able to travel to campus for reunion or Camp Scripps, but that doesn’t mean you can’t connect with our community where you are.

The Office of Alumnae Engagement can put you in touch with classmates, help you organize or publicize an event, and lend whatever support or inspiration you need to reach out. Whether you are interested in organizing a book club, coordinating a museum visit, participating in informal networking, or just meeting a fellow alumna neighbor and chatting, I encourage you to make it happen. No idea to connect our community is too small!

Need help? You can contact the Office of Alumnae Engagement at (909) 621-8054 or alumnae@scrippscollege.edu. I hope you will get connected, and stay connected!

Best wishes,

Kendra Armer ’93, Alumnae Association President
