Dear Friends,

Fall, with the cooler weather and colorful foliage, is a time of year to reflect on the year and give thanks to those people and institutions that mean most to us.  November is a month for families to gather, share stories, maybe join in a friendly game of football, and most importantly, create memories that define who we are.  This November, our alumni community has much to be thankful for.  In the past few months, we have reunited with old friends, fostered new memories, and worked to define our own next chapter.  As a fellow alumnus, I thank you for your continued support and active participation in our community.

Looking Closer

by Michael LaRue, assistant director of alumni relations

Last month, our community gathered to celebrate the accomplishments of this year's Alumni Achievement Award recipients and Athletics Hall of Fame inductees.  I was asked to open the event with a quick welcoming address.  Now let me be honest with you: public speaking is an area of awkwardness for me, and so I worry.  What if I turn red?  What if I fumble through my words?  What if...?  Read more...
