  • Elder Alumni Bowling League

    Started in the late-1980s, this is a Thursday night men's league at Western Bowl which runs from early October thru late February. This is a great way to stay socially connected to the Elder Family during the cooler months of the year. Contact Paul Kenkel '78 at 513-373-8160 or kenks@fuse.net.
  • EBA Career Day for Students

    Started in 1997 and sponsored by the Elder Businessmen's Association, Career Day for Students takes place during Catholic Schools Week in early winter.

    Please contact event chairman Luke Busam '00 at lbusam@goettle.com with any questions or if you have interest in presenting.
  • Elder Sports Stag

    The Elder Alumni Sports Stag is one of the longest running high school stags in the country. Started in 1977, hundreds of Elder alumni annually descend upon Elder's campus for an evening of camaraderie with good friends, former classmates, and other supporters of Elder.


    Tickets for the event usually go on sale two months in advance, and attendees can choose between general admission and VIP/Patron admission, which includes access to a private Principal's Reception with the featured speaker, special guests, and other dignitaries. All tickets include admission, a reception, drinks, dinner, program, and social. Men must be at least 21-years-old to attend.
  • Alumni Awards

    The Alumni Association annually recognizes graduates and active supporters of the school through the presentation of five alumni awards:
    • Christian Leadership Award
    • Spirit Award
    • Athletic Excellence Award
    • Professional Distinction Award
    • Cultural Enrichment Award
    These awards are presented each spring at a ceremony held in the Rev. Jerome A. Schaeper Center on Elder's campus. The ceremony is open to the public, but RSVPs are required in advance. Click here to learn more about the Alumni Awards and past recipients.
  • Grandparent/Grandson Mass and Brunch

    Grandfathers and Grandmothers alike, along with their young future Panthers, celebrate Mass together before enjoying a tasty brunch in the school cafeteria. Prior to Mass, attendees can sift through old yearbooks in our Library to find pictures of themselves, friends, and relatives. After brunch, feel free to tour campus, visit classrooms, science labs, and performing arts facilities, as well as run on the football field, buy something purple from our Spirit Shop, and more! Now held in the spring. Advanced reservations required.
  • Elder Alumni Softball League

    What a great way to spend the spring and summer...swinging for the fences alongside fellow Elder grads and friends. Started in 1981 and going strong ever since, teams battle for alumni supremacy throughout the regular season and again during our one-pitch tournament in late-July. Team registrations accepted through late-March with Opening Day in mid-April. For more information, email Joe Lind '04 or call him at 513-265-8233. Play ball!
