Thank you to those who completed the survey. Your responses are important, and I will continue to work to meet your needs and make improvements as possible. Our College cannot be successful without you—the alumnae and alumni. Some may ask why you should make the effort now.

Survey responses indicated that alums want to be asked to take an active role. I’m asking…please volunteer to help. I am encouraged that the survey said over half of all alums expressed great interest in staying involved in some way. Please share your thoughts and ideas and volunteer by e-mailing

I would like to welcome the newest alumni to the Association. The Class of 2015 is a wonderful class and joins the past three classes in achieving 100 percent participation in giving. We are very proud of you and look forward to creating programming to help you meet other alums.

Here are some important dates for alumnae and alumni events on campus: Council–September 18-20, 2015 Homecoming–October 23-24, 2015 Reunion–May 19-22, 2016 (for classes ending in 1 and 6, all alums welcome) Chapter Events (to see event details go to

In the fall, we will focus on the Lunch and Learn series to highlight alums and their careers and life accomplishments. Are you willing to speak to your chapter? Do you have a classmate you would like to recommend? Please e-mail me at or and share your ideas.

In the spring, we will kick off the College’s 125th celebration of its founding. To celebrate this milestone, we will offer activities including a day where we gather in cities across the country on the same day and share the fun through social media. Would you consider hosting an alum celebration or help in some other way?

We want to help alumnae and alumni feel connected to the College, the students, and each other, so plan to join in the fun at an event (or two) this year!
