In November, many ‘Berg alums once again found themselves back on campus and back in the classroom as part of Alumni in the Classroom Week 2002. During this popular professional development event, alumni from various occupations returned to campus to share information with students about their careers. Along with providing insight into their specific jobs, the alumni spoke about their personal experiences and the decisions they made at Muhlenberg that contributed to their success. Students viewed the alumni as mentors, which provided proof that there is life “beyond the red doors.”

Since the program began in 1994, more than 300 alumni have participated in the Alumni in the Classroom program. Thanks to a grant from PNC Bank that supports the Alumni in the Classroom program, we look forward to continuing the program in the spring during the week of March 24 - 28.

Participation in the program is on a volunteer basis. If you are interested in becoming involved, please call 484-664-3308 or e-mail



Tee time is just around the corner

There may still be a bit of snow on the ground where you are, but rest assured winter will soon be but a frosty memory and it will once again be time to hit the links.

And, what better way to showcase your swing and support your alma mater than by joining us at the Second Annual Cardinal & Grey Golf Classic. Mark your calendar now, as the Lehigh Country Club will be the place to be on June 9, 2003, whether your game rivals that of Tiger Woods, or your swing is more like Tony the Tiger’s.

Designed to be the largest one-day fundraising event solely benefiting Muhlenberg College Athletics, the First Annual Classic raised $18,000.

“The Cardinal & Grey Golf Classic supports all of our sport teams,” says Ted Lithgow ’53, Chair of the Cardinal & Grey Golf Classic. “When you look at the great successes our teams have enjoyed in recent years, you see why it’s so important to continue to support Cardinal & Grey, in an effort to continue that winning momentum.”

Highlights of last year’s event included a brunch, which gave the golfers a chance to mingle and catch up with coaches and other alumni. Also represented on the course were parents, friends of the College, trustees, and the local business community. The exciting day wrapped up with cocktails and an awards dinner.

During the dinner, prizes were awarded to the winners of various contests such as the longest drive, closest to the pin and many, many others. And, we’re pretty sure the winning foursome is still basking in the glory of its victory. The top team was comprised of two Muhlenberg fathers and their sons: Mr. Rob FitzPatrick and his son Kevin ’02, and Mr. Ron Jacobs and his son Rich ’02.

We hope you will consider joining us for another fun-filled day of golf and prizes as we try to beat last year’s fundraising total.
