Julia Stronks, '82, challenged students to use their youth and passions to make a difference in a broken world.

Several hundred alumni returned to campus at the end of February for a variety of reasons and activities. Some came to recognize the contributions of Distinguished Alumna, Dr. Julia K. Stronks, and to reminisce at a banquet in her honor. Some came to celebrate the agriculture department's 25th anniversary-or perhaps just to see if the profs really could flip flapjacks! Some came to admire the artistic works of the thirteen alums whose projects were selected for the art department's first juried alumni art competition.

Some came for the excitement of intercollegiate athletics. Some came great distances for the thrill of taking to the ice in the alumni hockey tournament. Whether they came from near or far, we trust their experience echoes this alum's: "The campus is alive and there are many new and impressive facilities that tell alumni and parents like myself...Dordt has kept up and is still a serious Christian and academic institution to be considered for our children and our financial support."
