UOG Alumni Update - March 2


·         1) GOVERNOR HONORS UOG’S 60-YEAR MISSION OF HIGHER EDUCATION
·          
·         Governor Eddie Baza Calvo is leading the community in the celebration of the University of Guam’s 60 years of paving the way for higher learning in the western Pacific region. “Education is our first line of defense against poverty. From giving students the opportunity for rewarding careers to the research that provides direction to make our community stronger, UOG and the Tritons are helping to set the pace for a stronger future,” Governor Calvo said. “It’s the premier university in the region and it’s the foundation of knowledge for so many of the leaders and professionals who make Guam what it is today.” UOG President Dr. Robert Underwood, the Board of Regents, administration, faculty, staff and students joined Governor Calvo at Adelup to proclaim March 13, 2012 in honor of the institution’s 44th Charter Day and Charter Week Ceremonies set for March 11 through 17, 2012.
We look forward to seeing you at Charter Day! The committee has been working hard to develop an exciting offering of activities and displays. As events are finalized they are posted on www.uog.edu/charterday

7) ALUMNI OUTREACH THROUGH FACEBOOK – WE NEED YOUR HELP!
·         I have created the official University of Guam Alumni Facebook page. There are many exciting activities in store for you this year as we celebrate the University's 60th Anniversary! The Facebook page is just one of the methods the Office of Alumni Affairs will use to keep you informed. To best address the objectives of this group, only UOG alumni are permitted to be part of it and interact with other members. We need this group to grow, so please feel free to send invitations to your fellow alum to join this group. But, please be aware that their inclusion is subject to verification.
·         To access the alumni group page, click the link below or cut and paste it. You must have a facebook account to log on.
 
In addition, you’re receiving this email because you either signed up for membership to the UOG Alumni Association or updated your contact information with the University. Over time, email accounts may get deleted or addresses change so some of your fellow alum are not receiving the latest campus-related news which may benefit them. I respect everyone’s privacy so I’m not asking you to send me email addresses. I do humbly ask, however, that if you know alum who don’t seem to be aware of these updates, please forward this email to them. If they contact me and give me their permission, I will gladly include them in our database so that they may start receiving updates. Should anyone opt out from receiving these emails I will surely honor their request as well.
