In an effort to lessen the impact of our carbon footprint, electronic communications will remain central to our alumni outreach. We will continue to email event invitations, announcements of new benefits and programs, as  well as other exciting news.
Over time, email accounts may get deleted or changed so some of your fellow alumni may not be receiving the latest campus-related news which may benefit them. I humbly ask that if you know of alumni who don’t seem to be aware of these updates, please forward this email to them. If they contact me and give their permission, I will include them in our database for email notifications. Should anyone opt out from receiving these emails I will surely honor their request as well.
