College Conversations

A small gathering in an intimate setting where donors and friends can hear about the College while learning about a special topic of interest. Typically hosted in a generous donor’s home, past topics have included secrets of a restaurateur with Robert Fong; An interview with TV & film producer Bob Goodwin; an evening of clay art with local artists Patricia Morse & Rob Beishline; and more. Several college conversations are held throughout the year. Contact us for more information. 

Scholarship Recognition & Awards Ceremony

A special celebration to honor the achievements of our scholarship recipients at the culmination of the academic year each Spring. In addition to recognizing the students in front of their family and friends, this event provides an opportunity for students to meet and thank the donors whose generous gifts have had a significant impact on their lives.
