Ashford University has launched a campus chapter of the Ashford University Alumni Association. The new group is targeted to alumni who graduated from the Clinton campus of Ashford University and its predecessors: Mount St. Clare College, The Franciscan University, and The Franciscan University of the Prairies.

“We are so pleased to start this chapter and engage our alumni in events held specifically for them,” said Kelly Franklin, Ashford campus alumni specialist. “We look forward to offering opportunities such as networking and mentoring our current students.”

The Campus Alumni Association is planning a “Possibly Picasso” painting event at Vinnie’s Lounge in Clinton from 6:30-9 p.m. on Thursday, June 18. Since space is limited, alumni should RSVP to by Wednesday, June 3.

In addition, the group is planning a summer golf outing as well as many networking events to be held this fall to connect alumni with current students.

The group is currently updating its alumni database, so alumni are encouraged to contact
