Steve Zolno ’71, President of the Alumni Association shows how you can do it from an armchair
We know that you don’t want to be just an armchair observer of Shimer alumni events.
There are many opportunities for you to become involved and move to – um – a different armchair. For example:
1. There are regularly scheduled alumni get-togethers that are happening and/or planned in Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, and other areas. These present opportunities to meet with other Shimer folks for a pot luck, book discussion, or any other style event of your choosing. You also might want to be involved in planning an alumni event in your area. It’s easy – just make a few calls and the Alumni in your area will beat a path to your door.
2. The Shimer Alumni Board is growing. We are planning to attend the commencement on April 30, and then meet on campus on May 1. The Alumni Board provides mentorship for students and ex-students in career choices, attends college fairs to support the school, and plans other events, such as a possible lecture series or reunion.
3. This month there is an opportunity to meet an alumni author, Young Kim, who recently had his book, Justice as Right Actions, published (congratulations!). Young Kim will be discussing his book on campus March 23, which will provide an opportunity to mingle with students and other alumni in a stimulating conversation of the type we all remember from our days at Shimer.
