Cross-Country Presidential Meet and Greet

Illinois Tech President Alan W. Cramb spent much of fall 2017 and January 2018 on the road, meeting with alumni around the country to share news about the university and strategic initiatives. During a November trip to Seattle, he met with alumni who graduated 50 or more years ago, but who were unable to attend their Golden Society Reunions. Cramb presented each of them with Golden Society medallions during a luncheon.
