Posted by Amanda Kelly on Thursday, April 12, 2012 at 8:24 AM PDT
April is a wonderful time of year at Seattle U. We are fortunate to watch our beautiful campus come to life as spring unfolds while enjoying the heightened energy from the celebration of Easter. It is also the beginning of the recognition and celebration of all our graduating seniors who are formally moving from life as a student to life as an alumni. These are reminders for me of how incredibly blessed I am to work at a place that has meant so much to me in my life, and to have met so many of you over the past ten months in my role as SU's Assistant VP of Alumni Relations. When I started in my role last June I told you that I envisioned my role to be one of a connector, helping to bring a series of benefits and resources to our alumni that help you better connect to Seattle U and to your fellow alumni. I am so pleased to announce that we have made great strides in making the first of these benefits a reality to help you get and stay connected to your alma mater!
To that end, I am happy to announce the launch of three core resources to help you get connected, stay involved and be a part of the Seattle U Alumni Association:
- An updated alumni web site has been updated with a consistent look, feel and brand for better usability and design to help you more easily find information, benefits and services.
- A new Alumni Online Directory is now available to allow you to easily keep your personal and professional information current as well as allow you to search for classmates and fellow alum by name, industry, location and more.
- SU's first ever Alumni Gear Online Store where you can purchase SU alumni gear online to show your SU pride!
Please look for an email from the Office of Alumni Relations in the next few weeks that contains your login and password info for the online directory along with more information on website updates and deals on alumni gear. This is the first launch of a comprehensive (and still growing) list of benefits and resources for our alumni and we will continue to work across the university to be a resource to you that will help you get involved, stay connected and build a lifetime relationship with your alma mater.
Take a look and let us know what you think. We want to hear from you and you can send your comments to us at Alumni Feedback. Again, it is my pleasure and privilege to continue to work towards our vision of "building a world class alumni relations office and presence" for you and the university.
