Alumni Events & News
Welcome, Bonnies, to your headquarters for alumni events and activities, as well as news for and about our Bona family.
Here you'll find information about upcoming events planned by alumni chapters across the country; scheduled visits to chapter cities by Office of Alumni Services representatives, including the popular Mountain on the Road series with Fr. Dan Riley, O.F.M.; as well as the latest news for and about our vast Bona family.
Due to restrictions in place as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, and out of concern for the safety and well-being of all, no in-person alumni events are being scheduled on or off campus at this time. We continue to explore holding virtual events, such as the Oct. 21 Bona Trivia event held on Zoom. (See Past Events below to view a recording of that event.) Individual alumni chapters continue to plan and host small gatherings, as permitted and warranted in light of the pandemic.
Virtual Beer Tasting & Brewery Tour
Take a break and join Bona alumni, parents and friends for an interactive virtual beer tasting and brewery tour led by John Urlaub, '81, founder of Rohrbach Brewing Company. Urlaub will take you behind the scenes of the brewery's operations and guide you through a tasting session. To register for this event, click here
