We Want You Back!
Thursday, September 28, 2006
What would bring you back to campus? Would you come back to speak to students and share what you’ve learned since graduation? Or to honor a classmate receiving an alumni award? In an alumni survey conducted last winter, 22 percent said they had visited campus within the past year. Thirty percent feel they have stayed connected with our school. The most popular way alumni stay involved is to refer a prospective student to SCSU and the next is to hire a recent graduate. Most alumni do not plan a trip back to campus, and yet look at what you’re missing!
The Alnwick, England, British Studies Program celebrated its 25th anniversary in August beginning with a fish and chips dinner attended by approximately 400 alumni, faculty members and British home stay families who traveled to campus from Northumberland. The same weekend, nearly 3,000 alumni and hockey fans converged on campus as two former Huskies on the winning Carolina Hurricanes team brought the Stanley Cup to SCSU. This fall, we have a full line-up of homecoming events Oct. 20-22, including the Alumni Awards banquet, a football game in our still-new stadium and more.
In an effort to reach out to more alumni, Kurt Stelten ’93 will be working with the Alumni Association Board of Directors to find new ways and tried and true ways to build lifelong relationships between your University and you. It’s not too late. We want you back. Visit us at our Web site www.stcloudstate.edu/alumni or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what would bring you back to campus.
