Whitman to Host Alumni Awards Ceremony and Business Pitch Competition During Orange Central

Dear Whitman Community,

As part of the Orange Central 2018 celebration, set for October 18-21 and featuring a full calendar of programming across campus, Whitman will host two exciting events:

The Whitman Annual Alumni Awards Ceremony and Reception – Thursday, October 18, 5 p.m.

The awards ceremony will begin at 5 p.m. in Whitman’s Flaum Grand Hall. A reception will immediately follow the presentation of awards. Stay tuned for the announcement of this year’s distinguished honorees.

The Fourth Annual Orange Tank Competition & Networking Reception – Friday, October 19, 1 p.m.

Our Fourth Annual Orange Tank, set for a 1 p.m. start in Whitman’s Flaum Grand Hall, will feature Whitman student and alumni entrepreneurs pitching their businesses to a panel of judges for a chance to win a cash prize made possible through a generous gift from Mark ’83 and Judi ’84 (VPA) Morris. A networking reception, starting at approximately 3pm, will follow the announcement of this year’s winning ventures.

Be sure to make your reservations for these two Whitman events and any others you would like to attend on campus throughout Orange Central 2018. If you have already registered, please refer to your confirmation email to make updates to your registration.

If you have any questions about the Whitman Alumni Awards Ceremony or Orange Tank competition, please contact Alison Kessler, interim executive director of alumni and corporate relations, at ahkessle@syr.edu.

We look forward to seeing you! Thank you for your support of Whitman! Go Orange!
