November 2021


Dear Friends,  

Fall is here and the semester is in full swing. As you will note in this newsletter, we are continuing to offer many wonderful learning opportunities and events, both on campus and virtually. Increased sophistication with virtual technology has been a gift that we continue to develop and use to connect with the broad Muskingum community.

On October 15-17, we hosted Magenta Homecoming, connecting and sharing updates with our alumni, students, and friends both virtually and in person. Congratulations once again to all our reunion classes, to our Class of 2020 who crossed the graduation platform in a recognition ceremony, and to our Distinguished Alumni Award and Emerging Alumni Award honorees.

November and December are particularly full months on campus as we bring another semester to a close while also celebrating this very special season. We encourage you to check our website for more information including the availability of virtual connections.

Your ongoing commitment ensures our continued impact. Thank you for all you do for Muskingum!
