What Are Alumni Saying?
AR alumni are using podcasts to share their passion about cars with the world. John Viviani ’00 and Will Posey ’00 host No Driving Gloves, and Brett Hatfield ’05 hosts The Driven. Both shows recently featured the annual car show at McPherson College. Check out what they had to say:
College, Cars, and Castles
McPherson College faculty, students, and alumni will travel to The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, and Switzerland exploring castles and car collections in January 2020.
