1. THE PURPOSE OF THIS WEBSITE

Return to Menu

This website's purpose is twofold: 1) Plan for the upcoming 2015 Reunion in Pasadena, as well as any subsequent reunions; and 2) Allow us all to connect and re-connect with our college classmates (even those who cannot attend the reunion), while making this site a scrapbook of memories for all who attended Pasadena and their families.

The first-ever multi-day Reunion in 2015 targets those who were students at the AC Pasadena campus during its first 30 years, 1947-1977.  The names of over 3,500 students during this time period were collected from the AC yearbooks (Envoys).  Students are listed according to the FIRST YEAR they attended the Pasadena campus rather than their year of graduation since some never graduated.  Please notify Jean Ehlert (Updegraff) (see "Contact Us" tab for email addresses) whenever you find a mistake. 

We want to find as many students as possible, and we need to locate many more students from this era!  Please forward this website to AC students from this 30-year period.

Everything you need to know about setting up a profile to gain access to the rest of our website is on this page. If you have questions, please email Jean Ehlert (Updegraff) or Bob Gerringer. 

 

2. PRIVACY NOTICE

Return to Menu

Our site is private!  All contact information (address, phone number, e-mail address) that you enter into this website will be kept confidential. The host of this web site, ClassCreator.com, is a small private business. They understand the importance of your privacy. Your personal information will never be sold to other sites. It will not be shared or distributed.

Your contact information is private; your street address, e-mail address, and phone number cannot be seen by classmates. Each classmate has the ability to limit the visibility of his or her profile to only fellow classmates by clicking on the appropriate answer in the Profile Visibility section during profile setup. If you do not opt for privacy on this line your profile can be viewed by non members such as your friends or family, but also note your profile will be fully indexable by major search engines.

Finding your class web site Profile pages by searching Google or other major search engines:

  • If you are signed on to the site and restricted your profile to only fellow classmates, and then use a search engine to see if the privacy options above are working, it will appear they are NOT. This is only because you are signed into the site. Sign out and check again. You will see that none of your profile information is viewable by non members.

 

Emails may be shared within this site using the contact option at the top of each classmate's profile page (just look under the classmate's main photo in the upper left). This way you will be able to contact classmates without sharing your private email address, unless you choose to do so.

All class Email news sent from us to you via this web site: For those of you with spam blocking or email filtering capabilities, please add noreply@classcreator.net to your email account as a safe sender in order to ensure you receive email communications from us.

Please note that if you do not want your name on this site it may be removed by contacting Jean. This will end all communications to you from the Ambassador College Pasadena 1947-1977, unless you ask that special arrangements be made.

 
 

3. SETTING UP YOUR PROFILE

Return to Menu

In order to access the pages that are password protected on this site, you must set up a profile by providing a minimum of your email address, and a password.

To set up your profile: locate the "Classmate Profiles" link and locate your name and click on it. Follow the prompts to create your profile.

Private information like your email address, home address, and phone numbers will not be visible to fellow classmates. We collect mailing addresses in the event that we need to contact you by snail mail or phone. Your information will never be given to other classmates without your permission.

We encourage you to add a current picture to your profile as a master photo. This photo will be displayed in various areas around the site. It's also helpful to upload an additional "Now" photo, and a "Then" photo. Classmates will enjoy seeing how you've changed!

If your name is not already on the site, but you attended Ambassador College Pasadena anytime between 1947 and 1977 or would like to be included as a guest, contact Jean and ask that your name and email address be added.

Updates: If you change your email address, snail mail address, or phone number, please update your Contact Info so we have up-to-date information. That way you'll always be in the know about what your classmates are up to!

Passwords:

Choosing a password: Passwords do not need to be the high security style recommended for some sites. Choose something simple that you are certain you will remember. Clicking the "Remember Me" will allow you to bypass entering the password each time you visit, but eventually the "remember me" will fail (for instance when you get a new computer). Please make note of your password!

If you forget your password simply click on "forgot password." If you have several email accounts, and you don't remember the one you used to set-up your account, contact Jean. This could take a while, so please be patient.

 
 

4. "MISSING" CLASSMATES

Return to Menu

We need your help to contact EVERY classmate. If you have information about any classmate, listed or not listed, please contact Jean.

 
 

5. COMMUNICATING WITH CLASSMATES

Return to Menu

To contact a fellow classmate, you may simply use the email option at the top left of each Classmate's Profile page (located under Master Photo). This feature will allow open communication between Classmates, while protecting your personal information. If you wish to share your email address or other personal information within a message written on our site, the site will not block you from doing so.

 
 

6. ADDING PICTURES TO YOUR PROFILE
