As one academic year closes and another will soon begin, we welcome hundreds of new Calvin parents to the readership of this Calvin-Parents newsletter. Calvin-Parents is published weekly when classes are in session, and 1to 2 times per month during the summer. Parents have told us that the Calvin-Parents newsletter is their critical "link" to the college and report that the information shared is timely, helpful and informative. If you wish to add additional e-mail addresses (work, grandparents, etc.), change delivery to a different address, or to unsubscribe simply follow directions posted on the Calvin-Parents Web site. If you experience any difficulty with these procedures simply send an e-mail message with your request to firstname.lastname@example.org or call Sue Kuyvenhoven in the parent relations office at 616-526-6802.
Because student life and campus activities slow down considerably during the summer months, Calvin-Parents will be published less frequently (once every two weeks) starting in June. There will be no Calvin-Parents next week, May 26. Weekly issues of Calvin-Parents will resume again at the end of August. Special summer bulletins will be published as needed. If you have individual questions or concerns during the summer please do not hesitate to contact Sue Kuyvenhoven in the parent relations office at 616-526-6802, or send a message to email@example.com. Thank you for participating in this important communication link between the college and Calvin families! Have a blessed summer!
Please note the following announcements regarding Commencement.
Prism, Calvin's yearbook, is the only publication that captures the spirit of an entire year at Calvin College. Your student will look up past classmates, remember the professors that inspired them, relive the big game moments, and read copy written by students, staff, and professors across campus about life at Calvin College when they were here. The 2008-2009 PRISM ($10) is a square book in full-color with 180+ pages. You can read more about the Prism in, "Prism: A Colorful Reflection," an article that was in the Spring Spark magazine, the magazine for alumni and friends of Calvin.
Graduates will be able to pick up Commencement tickets at the Calvin College Box Office until May 22, 2009 (student ID required)
Not all graduating seniors will be able to attend Saturday's ceremony. Some of them will be competing in the NCAA III Track and Field Championships as the Calvin men’s and women’s track and field teams will send a combined 15 athletes to Marietta College in Marietta, Ohio --10 from its women’s team and five from its men’s team.
The Honors Convocation was a celebration of achievement for Dean's List students and Honors graduates. The list of graduates and the speeches that were given on April 22 by Professor Bruxvoort and student Corey Velgersdyk are now available online.
