Ranked as the #1 happiest graduates in the nation, Centre College’s alumni celebrated their alma mater on March 30 during the 8th annual Worldwide Centre Social.
This year, 350 alumni gathered in 40 different locations across five countries, including several in Kentucky along with Albuquerque, Atlanta, Austin, Baltimore and Chicago, in addition to international locations, including Cape Town, South Africa; London, England and Seoul, South Korea.
The alumni office relies on alumni volunteers in these locations to plan, organize and host the socials.
“Worldwide Centre Social is a great way for alumni to get together and mingle with other alumni in their hometown,” Associate Director of Alumni Engagement Colleen Courtwright said. “This event also allows alumni in some smaller cities that we aren’t otherwise able to visit to have a Centre event.
“It’s always fun to see Centre alumni gathering together at the same time across so many different cities to share their Centre stories,” Courtwright added.
