Dear Shrine Alumni,

This is an incredibly dynamic and exciting time to be involved with Shrine.  As alums you have the chance to do just one thing:  Come back.  Come back to see, hear and feel the atmosphere of your alma mater.  Come back to see the upgrades to the campus.  Come back to hear the cheers at Friday night football games or the music of the spring musical.  Come back to feel the pride that the newest students on campus feel by being part of such a grand tradition.  Come back because it is still your school, and never has there been a better time to renew your pride in all that it represents to our Shrine community.  If it’s been a while, let us know you’re coming and we’ll welcome you!

After you experience all of that, I dare you! to not! get involved. The Alumni Association hosts numerous events, programs and volunteer opportunities locally and we are working to develop them regionally as well.

If you are interested in helping to form a new alumni club in your area, we would welcome the opportunity to assist you.  These new alumni clubs will help us connect with other alumni and grow our regional network.  Stay connected!

Facebook:  If you are not part of our Alumni Facebook page, join us!  This is a great opportunity for you to learn about upcoming events, keep in touch with old classmates, post updates on news in your world, and more.

Update your profile:  A network is only as strong as those who participate in it!  If your information is not updated, your former classmates cannot connect with you. Update your profile now by contacting Elizabeth Rademacher, Director of Annual Fund and Alumni Relations at or call 248-549-2925 ext 2503

In closing, our Alumni Association is only as strong as the sum of its parts.  We are all Shrine Knights, and we stand over 7,000 strong.
