Message from the Alumni Director

Earlier last week, we celebrated 100 days until the next undergraduate commencement. and then we were looking at 10 inches of fresh snow on campus. It’s hard to believe that spring and then commencement are just right around the corner, but they will be here before we know it. Keep an eye out for the announcement of new events including a women’s networking event in March and a reunion for all alumni athletes in April. In the meantime, stay warm and safe in the snow!

The highlight of this Valentine’s Day on campus was a festive celebration of one of Kean University’s sweethearts, Maxine Lane ’78 H’14 who died last May. Friends, students and staff came out to remember the indelible impact she left on the Kean community by sharing stories while enjoying hot chocolate and cookies and reliving some of her inspirational speech from the 2014 commencement.
