Homecoming 2017 is October 20 & 21.

Welcome to the Alumni Family

We are excited to welcome Shorter’s Class of 2017 as the newest members of our alumni family. Commencement exercises were held Friday, May 5, in the Winthrop-King Centre. View a gallery of photos from the event.

Little Black Dress Tea

Participants at the Little Black Dress Tea

Special thanks to the ladies (and gentlemen), vendors, and sponsors who took part in our first Little Black Dress Tea and helped make it a success. The February 18 event filled the Price Learning Center with fun and laughter and helped raise funds for a women’s scholarship at Shorter. Alumna Connie Mercer Carey was the featured speaker and delivered a talk that was both inspiring and hilarious. We’re already thinking about plans for the next event.

In a 2014 speech, Alumna Connie Mercer Carey describes how Shorter graduate Nancy Jenkins Claxton had a great effect on her life.

Shorter University is excited to connect with alumni in fun and creative ways. Our Alumni and Advancement staff recently enjoyed stopping in to see alumni working at Floyd hospital and Chick-fil-a’s corporate headquarters and are on the road regularly to visit with alumni and friends.
