Once again, students, faculty and staff donated money to help purchase turkeys that were donated to Hunger Task Force. This year enough money was collected to purchase 140 turkeys. That donation was generously matched by Food Services Inc., bringing the total number of turkeys donated to 280. It’s part of the annual “Cans Across the Conference” food drive, a competition between all the schools in the Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference. For the past six years Alverno has won the competition, despite the fact that there are much larger schools in the conference. Both Fox 6 and CBS 58 came out to cover our donation.
A few months into her tenure as Alverno’s eighth president, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel featured Sister Andrea in this front page profile.
In order to give students, faculty and staff a chance to practice their effective citizenship, Alverno College will close for the presidential election on November 8. CBS 58 ran the story on their website.
When Alverno College made plans for its $30 million construction and renovation, it specifically looked for ways to be better environmental stewards. Part of that plan involved installing a bioswale and retention tank in the Pitman Theatre parking lot. 12 News came out to see how the bioswale and retention tank work together to help reduce storm water runoff.
Alverno College received a $2.7 million grant from the Hilton Foundation to raise awareness about the work being done by Catholic Sisters. This article ran in BizTimes announcing the grant.
