A reminder of campus life.
Nothing breaks up the daily grind like a conversation with someone you knew when life was all about mid-terms, football games, and pitchers of beer shared with friends, and social hour at the student union. It makes for an instant connection to a simpler place and time. Alumni associations are those magical touchstones, and Hilton Head Island has had the good fortune of being home to many.
“We’ve really focused our attention on philanthropic work,” said Dan Castro, an active member of the Notre Dame Alumni Association, which has donated considerable resources to low-income island residents over the years. The Fighting Irish alums are not alone in their good works, especially when it comes to offering scholarship money to local students looking to attend the alma mater of a particular alumni association.
