Clubs for Alumni & Friends

An Invitation from President Kirk E. Peterson

Chowan University continues its rise to new heights with a foundation firmly rooted in Christian ideology, and a campus community immersed with the spirit to achieve.

With this same spirit, I encourage you to join me as a member of the University club. As a successful alumnus or friend of the University, you serve as a key component in assuring a bright future for this fine institution. Your generous financial assistance will make it possible for students to receive a comprehensive educational experience in a caring atmosphere. Gifts of $1,000 or more annually qualify you for membership in the University Club.

Chowan University is poised to play an even larger role in educating a new generation of young people. As we celebrate the first 160+ years of quality Christian education, we are working hard to build on our history of success. It is my sincere hope that you will return to the campus of Chowan University often and rediscover its many attributes.

Best wishes,
Kirk E. Peterson
