Dolphin Conversations

  • Date  September 20, 6-8 p.m.
  • Location  Seasons 52

At Jacksonville University, engaging in meaningful dialogue is at the heart of what we do. It combines ideas and human interaction, and allows us to better understand each other and the world around us. Some of our JU alumni and parents have volunteered to facilitate Dolphin Conversations around the country to bring fellow Dolphins – and our ideas  together.

Dolphin Conversations are designed to be fun! No expertise is required, just a willingness to share and listen.  Conversations may focus on a wide range of relevant topics, not just about the University. Jacksonville parents are invited to participate in the first event on September 20 at Season’s 52 with facilitator Steve Piscitelli '75. Dinner is Dutch treat. Space is limited - reserve your spot by contacting Pat Reeves at or (904) 256-7202.
