Virtual Alumni Week has something for everyone
G eorgia College’s Virtual Alumni Week (VAW) slated for Nov. 2 through 8 will have back-to-back events, ensuring a fun, interactive and lively time for all.
“Alumni will get a unique experience during Alumni Week,” said Tre’ Juan “Tre” Johnson, assistant director of alumni awards, collaborations and reunions. “They will participate in virtual tours of our beautiful campus landmarks, engage in networking events with fellow alumni and get a glimpse of our student experience, as we walk them through their own personal GC Journey.”
Throughout the weekend, Georgia College will host a virtual scavenger hunt, which will be team oriented. Alumni can have up to eight individuals on their team. There are some major prizes for lucky winners. The prizes include our grand prize—a private catered BBQ for a group of 15 on the front lawn of the Governor’s Mansion with GC President Dr. Dorman. Other activities include: A Golden Slipper Reunion, tour of Andalusia and more.
The Alumni Award Ceremony is typically held in person on Saturday evening. This year, the Alumni Award recipients will be announced throughout VAW, as opposed to one big ceremony.
“We will do some innovative things with the announcements, so alumni should make sure they stay tuned-in for each one,” said Johnson.
The VAW Committee includes members of the GC Alumni Board, Foundation Board and varied generations of alumni. The team developed a variety of events, catering to all ages, for the week. A 131st Birthday celebration for Georgia College will close VAW.
“We have received some positive feedback and have a few virtual events leading up to VAW,” he said. “Alumni who have participated in our previous reunions, most notably our Golden Slipper Classes, have even expressed interest in being a part of VAW.”
