Ten parents recently joined Christina Yan, director of alumni relations, to put together care packages for alumni who are away at college. “We had a great time,” said Yan. “Lots of laughing and parents comparing stories of sending warm sweaters to kids in cold climes.” The group put goodies that the students can snack on during exams and a letter with faculty messages into the packages. They finished early and had time to enjoy coffee and conversation before touring the just-opened John Near Resource Center as well as the new library, which opened in September.
