A Warm ’Berg Welcome for President Helm

One thing is for sure — Muhlenberg alumni know how to welcome someone into their community! This fall, more than 750 alumni, parents and friends of the College came out to meet Muhlenberg’s 11th president, Peyton R. Helm, at events in the Lehigh Valley, New York City, Washington, D.C., Boston and Philadelphia. At each event, after a warm welcome and introduction from an Alumni Association officer, President Helm offered a “Newcomer’s Look at Muhlenberg,” leaving alumni with an overwhelming sense of pride and enthusiasm for their alma mater and its future.

The spring promises more opportunities for alumni to meet President Helm when he visits New Jersey, Florida, California and Chicago for more alumni receptions.

Over the past 20 years more than 1,400 Muhlenberg women have entered into the bonds of sisterhood – and that’s cause for celebration! So alumnae sisters of Alpha Chi, Delta Zeta, Phi Sig and Phi Mu, whether it’s been one year or 20 since you’ve been to the ’Berg, make sure you’re on campus for:
