Alumni Adventures

From behind-the-scenes visits to well-known (and little-known) Cleveland sites to world tours, the CSU Alumni Association’s calendar of events has something for everyone. 

Our autumn Passport Cleveland series included a hike through the Cleveland Lakefront Nature Preserve to view birds, butterflies, trees and wildflowers; a tour of churches and the Museum of Divine Statues and a backstage pass to the Masonic Auditorium.

Our equally popular Viking Days for Viking Families included Halloweekends at Cedar Point.

If seeing the world is more your style, Viking Travelers is for you. This November, the program offered a seven-night cruise to the Caribbean and Mexico.

On the Road

The “CSU Then and Now” show is so popular with alumni, we’re hitting the road again.

In October, we visited New York City, bringing with us President Harlan Sands. A native of New York state, this “homecoming” was the president’s first official visit with Big Apple alums. An enthusiastic group from the tri-state area was on hand for the reception.

In November, the alumni team was in Pittsburgh. Once again, alums turned out in large numbers to show their Viking spirit and learn how CSU Then has become CSU Now – one of the country’s leading urban universities.

When the snow flies, we’ll head south to Florida. On January 30, it’s our annual visit with alums in The Villages.

On February 1, it’s Fort Myers for our always popular CSU2U. This alumni college event showcases faculty members sharing their expertise on a variety of interesting topics. It’s always a sell-out! 

In March, we’ll make our annual trip to Arizona to catch spring fever and the Indians in spring training. 

Information on all On the Road events will be posted at as details are finalized. We hope to see you!

Mark your calendar for Tuesday, April 14 and join us for CSU’s sixth-annual Women’s Leadership Symposium! 

The 2020 symposium will be held at the InterContinental Hotel near the Cleveland Clinic campus. Once again, the program will feature inspiring keynote speakers, panelists and presenters to empower alumni (women and men!) to be the best they can be. 

Keynote speakers will be Lisa Goich and Justice Melody Stewart. Goich is an award-winning author and copywriter, blogger, journalist, former stand-up comedian and talk radio host. Alumna Stewart made history when she was sworn into Ohio’s Supreme Court as the first African-American woman and the first black Democrat elected to the state’s highest court.

If you’ve attended past programs, you know how educational and enlightening this day can be. If you’ve never attended, now is the time.

Information on the Women’s Leadership Symposium will be posted at We hope to see you.
