Family Connection Continues for LCU Alumni at 2016 Summer Forever Blue Events

The family environment at LCU doesn’t end after graduation – LCU Alumni Connection works hard to ensure that the LCU community has ways to stay connected, from Homecoming to Forever Blue summer events.

“Sometimes alumni, former students, and their families come to campus for Homecoming and special events. Other times, we go to see them,” explained Sheila Dye, assistant vice president of alumni and community relations.

Dye estimates that, since October 2013, alumni relations has traveled around 36,000 miles to “see, celebrate, and connect alumni.” This year, they hosted tandem events with admissions in Arlington, Houston, Midland, and Albuquerque; family alumni events in Palo Duro Canyon and Roswell; and gathered alumni at existing events at Pepperdine and Red River Family Encampment.

“Staying connected by phone, mail, and social media is the next best thing, but it can’t replace the joy of seeing family in person.  It is the same way in the LCU alumni family,” Dye said. “It is always a joy and privilege to catch up, to meet baby Chaplings and future Chaps, and most of all, to celebrate the way LCU continues to work in the lives of alumni and students.”
