A Chat With the Calvarusos

Get to know Interim President Joe Calvaruso, ’78 and his wife, Donna, in an informal online chat this evening – details below.

Interim President Joe Calvaruso, ’78 and his wife Donna share their Albion Everywhere moments:

Several years ago, Donna and I were in Brussels, Belgium enjoying Belgium waffles and chocolate. We were there for ten days, and we got to enjoy this amazing city. A friend of ours introduced us to a man who worked for the State Department. I can’t remember his name now, but what I do remember is that he was an Albion Alumni! He was very excited to meet another Albion Alumni so far from home. We had a great conversation about our experiences at Albion College — many years and many miles from Albion.

Another time, Donna and I were on Mackinac Island and we were staying at the Grand Hotel. We ran into Dan Musser, who at the time owned the Grand Hotel. Dan, a proud Albion College Alumni and a former member of the Board of Trustees, was a very gracious host. Donna complimented him on the delicious food and excellent service in the Grand’s main dining room. Dan began to explain the secrets of how they were able to serve so many people so quickly, and before we knew it, he took us back to the kitchen for a backstage tour. It was a fun experience!

Albion is Everywhere!

As an Albion alum, you have the power to do so much good in the lives of current students and alumni. Your business acumen, your life experiences, your happy memories of your time spent here in Albion — all those have value and are worth sharing. Whether you choose to network, to mentor, to share, to guide — there are so many ways you can make a difference in the lives of others who share your Albion experiences. Your financial support helps to provide that Albion Experience to current and future students.

Please share your own Albion Everywhere story. Have you randomly met an Albion graduate while on vacation? Have you had an unexpected experience (like the kitchen tour) because you met an Albion alum? Have you seen an Albion sports jersey at your child’s sporting event? There are so many ways that Albion graduates interact with each other across the world. We love to hear your stories!

Please register to join us tonight for our virtual event — Get to Know Interim President Joe Calvaruso and his wife, Donna, at 7:30 p.m. ET. Ask the Calvarusos your questions! Share any questions you have for them here. Alumni Board President, Ted Everingham, ’61 will moderate our conversation. We’ll hear what the Calvarusos love about the Albion community, and why they are committed to the future of Albion College.

We look forward to reading your Albion Everywhere stories. We hope you can join us tonight!
