Top 10 Ways to Stay Connected

June 2012

Congratulations on your recent graduation from Tyndale. It was wonderful to see more than 200 graduates join you in the spring 2012 graduation.

The degree that you now have is one that can never be taken away from you. It is the culmination of your years of effort, and we at Tyndale are proud to call you our graduate.

As I mentioned at graduation, the word alumni is an interesting word. In modern usage, it means someone who is a graduate of a certain university or a similar educational institution. You will take the name of Tyndale, with its reputation, as you journey onto the rest of your life and wherever God calls you to serve.

The original meaning of the word alumni carries more depth of meaning. It is born out of the Latin word “Alere” to nurture and be nurtured. It comes from the idea that an alumnus is someone who has been nurtured in the values and principles of the school. Our prayer is that these values will be key to your future success.

As a student of Tyndale you have been cherished and as an alumnus we will continue to hold you in high esteem. Your regular presence here will be missed and your impact on your fellow students and your professors will be remembered. When we talk to our alumni, even those that graduated in the 1940s, they mention how they are still in contact with many of their peers. Our prayer is that you too will keep connected with your Tyndale family. Here are the “Top Ten” ways to stay in touch.


Blessings upon you,

Rev. Dr. Rob Patterson
Director, Alumni & Church Relations
