The Magazine for Alumni and Friends of Calvin College
  The Calvin Spark, the Alumni Association's quarterly magazine founded in 1954, continued the legacy of alumni communication begun with the initiation of the "Alumni Letter" in 1925.
Today, Spark On-line gives alumni and friends of Calvin a chance to catch the highlights of each issue of the magazine, plus added resources and links to make the Spark experience even more informative and exciting.
