“The addition of this outdoor dining area will be enjoyed by students for many years to come. We know from personal experiences that travel greatly expands not only our horizons, but also allows us to better understand the many cultures of God’s world. Thank you for your generous support of the 2021 Reunion Gift Project. Together we can do great things!”

Enhancing the Student Experience

Click to enlarge

Each year, classes celebrating a banner reunion (five-year increments) join together to fund a project of significant importance to our alma mater. The 2021 Reunion Gift Project funds will focus on enhancing the student experience.

The primary focus of the 2021 Reunion Gift will be the creation of an outdoor dining area adjacent to the west wing of the Johnson Cafeteria (left of the front door). This will be an exciting addition to the campus dining experience. Included will be a grille and food prep in addition to table seating.  A new door with ramp will allow easy access from the cafeteria.  The exterior wall will provide additional seating for larger gatherings.

Looking back at the Johnson Cafeteria from the site of the new Collaborative Learning Center. Outdoor seating area will be to the left of the sidewalk and include some space in front of the exit door.

Additional funding will go to the Global Impact Fund. This assists needy students with expenses related to fulfilling their cross-cultural experience, which has been a graduation requirement since 2010.

The goal for the 2021 Reunion Gift Project is $250,000.  It is an Asbury tradition for reunion-year alumni to make a special “over and above” contribution to the Class Gift Project.  Multi-year pledges are an option with gifts due by December 31, 2022.
