  • Alumni Weekend 2020 Announcement  

    In response to the global COVID-19 pandemic and the University continuing to operate remotely, the President’s Council (Fr. Malachi and University Vice Presidents) has made the decision to cancel Alumni Weekend 2020, scheduled for July 23 - 26.

    Alumni Weekend draws hundreds of alumni and friends from around the country each year, and with the virus expected to be with us for the foreseeable future, it was determined that the risk was too great to hold Alumni Weekend this summer. We made this decision with your safety and those of all who participate in the weekend as the primary reason.  

    Alumni Weekend is one of our greatest traditions, and we look forward to it every year. Even though this cancellation is necessary, it does not make it any easier, and it is disappointing news for all of us.

    I want you to know that we are committed to celebrating both the 2020 and 2021 anniversary classes and affinity group reunions during next year’s Alumni Weekend, scheduled for July 22 - 25, 2021, which will serve as the official kickoff to the University’s 175th-anniversary celebration.  
    It is difficult to deliver this disappointing and sad news. However, the well-being of you and your family continues to be in the best interest of all. We look forward to welcoming you back to campus as soon as it is safe to do so.  

    As I have written before, no one is untouched by these turbulent times. Please stay connected with one another through phone calls, emails, texts, and social media.  We are all counting on one another. Please do not hesitate to connect with me as well at rcrusciel@francis.edu or 814-472-3021.

    Saint Francis and Saint Clare, pray for us.

    Sincerely,
    Bob Crusciel '86
    Vice President for Advancement
