Where can you find the Gael spirit?
You’ll find it in the 40,000 alumni, 4,000 students, 350 staff and 200 faculty living out the College’s Lasallian mission everyday in ways large and small.
It’s in the weekly Community Time barbecue where students, faculty and staff gather for casual conversation. It’s the roar of the Gael Force and the feeling in our hearts as we attend the Mass of the Holy Spirit each year. And it’s in the way we come together in support of the College.
Last year alone 5,800 alumni, family, friends and donors attended a record-breaking 80 events in 25 locations worldwide. Attendance at July 2012 class reunions jumped 62 percent with nearly 1,000 alumni and friends participating in the weekend activities — the most in College history.
Household giving to the College grew by almost 15 percent, with alumni giving up 9 percent and donations from parents up 30 percent. Service to the College by alumni and friends is at an all-time high, with 776 alumni and friends serving on 27 different College boards, committees, chapters and groups, and providing an estimated 7,000 service hours.
