Adrian College Alumni Notes



Alumni Mentoring Pilot Program AMPP

2017 Alumni Directory

The Adrian College Alumni Association has partnered with PCI (Publishing Concepts, Inc.) to contact alumni to request an update for the new directory. Starting in January, postcards, emails and phone calls will be used to connect with you for basic info as well as photos, and more. Options to purchase the directory will be available.

➤ One hundred years ago, in 1916, West Lafayette College (Ohio) merged with Adrian College by approval of the Methodist Protestant Church, bringing an increase to enrollment totaling 147 students, as well as a large library and some laboratory equipment. ➤ Fifty years ago, in 1966, Camelot, the first musical in Dawson Auditorium to be produced in many years, broke all previous attendance records with a total audience of 3,100.

Over 20 alumni are participating in the Alumni Mentoring Pilot Program to connect with students seeking professional advice and career experience. Handshake, the online platform for students exploring internships and job opportunities, recently expanded to include a mentor option. The Institute for Career Planning and Office of Alumni Relations will evaluate the pilot program in summer 2017 and make recommendations for its further development. For questions, email
