"One Day, Three Cushing Events" for Young Alumni

On January 7, Cushing welcomed back 16 recent graduates for our inaugural “One Day, Three Cushing Events” designed specifically for young alumni. Attendees spoke during Friday’s all-school assembly, enjoyed lunch with friends and faculty in the dining hall, and then ventured in to Boston to attend and evening performance of Cirque du Soleil: Dralion.

In addition to giving current students a look at their life post-Cushing, the young alumni reflected on how Cushing – and especially our faculty – prepared them for college. “We created this event because we believe ‘once a Penguin, always a Penguin’” said Jan Tracy, Associate Director of Development. “We want our newest alumni to know that they always have a home at Cushing. This was a great opportunity for them to see their beloved teachers, coaches, dorm parents, and friends. Our goal is to keep Cushing connections strong for alumni of all ages.”


We look forward to future young alumni events and making this one an annual tradition!
