Merry Christmas from the Office of Alumni Relations!

The Fall 2016 semester has come to a close and the campus is quiet once again. Christmas is right around the corner and another year has come and gone. As you prepare to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior I would encourage you to reflect on all that God has done, is doing and will do in your life this coming year. It is my sincere hope that you and your families will feel the love of Christ this holiday season and that these next few weeks would be full of rest, renewal and peace. We can't wait to share another year with you!

REGISTER TODAY - Homecoming and Family Weekend '17

At Jessup, we have the unique opportunity of bringing people together from all walks of life, forming a strong community and creating bonds similar to a family. When asked what people cherish most about their time at Jessup, it always comes back to community. Community is part of who we are, and one of the things we stand for. Whether you spent your undergraduate years in the halls of our San Jose Campus, or walked up the ramp for the first time with your student this past August, you are now part of, and always will be, a member of our Jessup Family. Join us during Homecoming and Family Weekend as we reconnect with relationships both old and new to celebrate Jessup’s historic past, meaningful present and exciting future!

Below are just a few of the events that will be taking place during our time together.
