Plan For Your Future Like You Plan For Your Vacation

Planning for a vacation requires selecting a destination, making reservations and packing your bags. There is another area of life that requires good planning — your estate plan. A good estate plan can ensure you are prepared for the future, so that you have what you need when you need it.

To learn more about setting up an estate plan, and other planned giving opportunities, please visit our Planned Giving website by clicking here or contact Jen Schuller, Vice President of Alumni Relations and Development, at 330.569.5839 or

Call for Reunion Committee Volunteers

Reunions represent a significant milestone in our lives and provide a time to reconnect with classmates of the College in a meaningful way. Behind any reunion is a dedicated group of volunteers working to make it a success. If your graduating class ends in a “4” or a “9” you will be celebrating a special reunion during Alumni Weekend on June 14-16, 2019 -- would you like to help plan the festivities?


Consider volunteering now for your class reunion planning committee!

For more information, please contact Jackie (Noall) Crandall at
