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. 


Alumni Events


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.


Upcoming Events

  • History Happy Hour

    Grant's Last Battle: The Story Behind The Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant
    Host: Chris Mackowski, Ph.D.

    Facing financial ruin and struggling against terminal throat cancer, Ulysses S. Grant fought his last battle to preserve the meaning of the American Civil War. His war of words, The Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant, would cement his place as not only one of America's greatest heroes but also as one of its most sublime literary voices. Chris's virtual talk is based on his book Grant's Last Battle: The Story Behind the Personal Memoirs of Ulysses S. Grant, published by Savas Beatie. Registration is required to receive the Zoom link.
