Interterm Recap, Spring Update

Karlene Tyler

Karlene Tyler, Alumni Director

I just returned from the choir and band tour through Poland, Czech Republic, Austria, and Germany. What an awesome experience! And, I am speaking for myself, but also on behalf of everyone on the trip. We toured Auschwitz at Krakow, walked over the St. Charles Bridge in Prague, toured Mozart’s birthplace in Salzburg, and toured the Fuggerei in Augsburg, Germany. Besides seeing these historic places the students performed at universities, town halls, churches, cathedrals, and walked, walked, walked. For a much more detailed summary of the trip please read the blog on our website, authored by students.

I also want to alert you surfers that we are coming to California this weekend! There are alumni gatherings at the University of Laverne on Sunday, February 8 and in San Diego on February 9. If you missed your invitation or missed RSVP call now and we will still get you in. The rest of the area alumni gatherings are outlined in the Review that you should be receiving soon. Besides California, we will be hosting events in February in the McPherson area, in the Lawrence and Topeka area in March, and Iowa in April. Look for your invitations to arrive about 2-3 weeks ahead of the event.

A special treat for those of you in the Kansas City area. Our alumni gathering there will feature a puppet show by our own Mike Horner at the Nelson-Atkins Art Gallery. The event is planned for Sunday, March 22 at 2:00 pm. More details later.

And finally, this is still early, but for you COB folks, we are going to reinstitute the McPherson College luncheon at Annual Conference this summer in Tampa, Florida! There will be more details to come, but wanted to let you know that we heard you and will host a luncheon as the rest of the COB colleges and universities.
