60 Alumni Stories for 60 Years

For Conrad Grebel University College's 60th anniversary, we are celebrating the best part about Grebel: the people! In an ongoing project, we are having conversations with–and writing stories about–nominated alumni who stand out as interesting or influential individuals, who left a positive impact on the College, and who continue to demonstrate a connection to Grebel's core values in their lives. Each of these conversations reveal new, inspiring stories from Grebel alumni living around the world. A new one is released each Tuesday. Read more:

Do you remember someone from your days at Grebel who was particularly interesting or has gone on to be inspirational? Please take some time to nominate them for our collection.
