The McKendrean Magazine - Summer 2022

From the Alumni Director

Brandi Brown-Harris, M.A. ’10Greetings, McKendree Alumni and Friends,

Congratulations to the Class of 2022! Remember that life at McKendree University doesn’t end when you graduate; it only continues to grow and thrive. You are now part of a distinguished network of 21,000 alumni.

As the Director of Alumni Relations, I am working continuously to promote events and activities that will strengthen the relationship among our alumni, as well as provide a good infrastructure that will continue to nurture, support and engage all alumni with the University.

I am pleased to announce a few of our upcoming events that I hope will be of interest to you. We will have Alumni Day with the St. Louis Blues hockey team, a football alumni tailgate party and most importantly, our Homecoming Reunion Weekend, which will be held on October 28-30, 2022. I encourage you to monitor our social media pages and the Bearcat Buzz for specific dates and times.

As always, I strongly encourage you to keep in touch with the Office of Alumni Relations. Update us on your personal and professional lives-whether you moved, changed jobs, got married or experienced any other significant life change. Please send us an email or call – we’d love to hear from you!

Warmest regards,


Brandi Brown-Harris, M.A. ’10
