When I drove on campus for the first time in almost 10 years, I was amazed at all of the updates to campus. The guard house at the front of the school, the front drive with new sidewalks, new dorms, a coffee shop and workout facility, a recording studio, and the list could go on… The campus and the amenities have come a long way from when I was a student here. I was excited that students today were able to walk the same places I once did and yet enjoy something new.
While I reminisced of my “college days,” I walked around campus and talked with staff and faculty. I was reminded that, while some things change, there are others that stay the same. The University of Mobile is still a place where the professors know you by name. There is still something fun going on all the time. There are still groups of students who gather for Bible study and worship. Students are still receiving a great education. Most importantly, this school is still raising up leaders to go out and change the world in the name of Jesus. What a blessing!
As I’ve gotten older, I’ve realized the importance of relationships, both old and new. That being the case, I invite you to come and be an active member of our Alumni Association. If you would like to receive information regarding upcoming Alumni events, you can go to our website and quickly update your info at www.umobile.edu/classnotes. While you’re at our website you can check to see if there’s a local Alumni Chapter in your area where you can link up with old friends and even make some new ones. If there isn’t one presently in your area, we would love to talk with you about the possibility of starting one.
If you would be interested in helping out with our Alumni Association, we would love to talk with you regarding the possibility of becoming one of our Alumni Board of Directors.
We always welcome our alumni to come and tour the campus. If you would like to set up an official tour of campus, feel free to contact our Alumni Office and we’ll get it set up for you.
