Calumet's 50th Anniversary Celebration

Calumet College celebrated its 50th Anniversary during the 2020-2021 academic year. We collaborated on celebrations with our Calumet students, alumnae, fellows, and faculty!

We’ll be sorting through where Calumet College started, our connections, and touch-base with members of the Calumet community who can tell us more about the changes we see today.

Being gathered in the same space allows you to make those valuable connections, so we’re working towards renovating the space inside Calumet College to make it more accessible and more enjoyable for everyone. 

A variety of social and career-oriented events will be held throughout the Winter semester to help students connect with active community members and gain valuable insight into building their careers. 

A variety of engaging and informative content will be posted on our social media pages and our website. This is to make sure we able to connect with everyone and spread the news about Calumet’s 50th Anniversary!
