Cheyney Alumni Weekend 2017

Cheyney Alumni Weekend 2017

The Cheyney University National Alumni Association invites you and your family to save the date for Alumni Weekend 2017, going on in the Greater Philadelphia Area from Friday, May 5 to Sunday, May 7, 2017.

Cheyney Alumni Weekend 2017As always, Alumni Weekend (a.k.a. “May Weekend”) is a time for the Cheyney family to return home, share their success stories, fellowship with classmates, and advance our mission to support our beloved Alma Mater.

Don’t forget! This year, Cheyney University of Pennsylvania is celebrating it’s 180th Anniversary and the Cheyney University National Alumni Association is spearheading a $2 Million Scholarship Campaign! We have already raised $1.8M in scholarship support for Cheyney students. Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to the Alumni Scholarship Fund when purchasing your event tickets this spring.

Proceeds from CUNAA’s Alumni Weekend fundraisers will benefit the Cheyney Alumni National Scholarship Fund which provides students with the financial support they need to enroll at CU and complete their undergraduate degree programs. As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, all charitable donations to CUNAA are tax-deductible as mandated by law.

Please make your check payable to “CUNAA” and mail your payment to:
