Spartan Pen Pals
The Office of Alumni Relations has needed to quickly evaluate some of our alumni engagement opportunities for alumni and adjust our strategies given the current climate. With the closure of York College’s campus through the remainder of the spring 2020 semester, the traditional practice of Spartan Pen Pals mailing physical cards to graduating seniors and incoming first-year students has become difficult. Despite the postponement of regular campus activities, including the May 16 commencement ceremony, York College remains committed to celebrating the accomplishments of our graduates and will be doing a virtual Pen Pal program for this semester. Let's help to make this time as upbeat and celebratory as possible and provide them with a warm welcome as they prepare to join the Spartan alumni community.
To participate, please fill out the form below with your advice and well-wishes for soon-to-be graduates and your message will be personally sent to seniors via an e-card. To keep the students email addresses confidential, the Office of Alumni Relations will send these e-cards to each student on behalf of every alumni Pen Pal. We recognize that this is not as personal as normal, but we appreciate your cooperation in these unprecedented times.
Your Spartan messages will be shared in the following outlets: (bullet them out below)
- Every senior will receive a personalized ecard with an alumni message in the body
- Alumni advice will be featured in their Senior e-newsletters
- Messages may also be selected to be shared on social media so that seniors can receive multiple uplifting messages and feel the support of the entire alumni community
As we continue to monitor the ongoing situation, we will decide how to move forward with welcoming incoming first-year students. Information
Let's show our seniors what it means to be part of the Spartan family!
