Greetings! Jen Hane

(Outlook 2007 users - please view this email online).
 
Each May brings a time of celebration to campus as we prepare for commencement, award new scholarships, and recognize the many people on campus who make UCCS such a unique and special place.
 
Last week, we honored many faculty and staff at the Campus Awards Ceremony. Last Wednesday evening, we welcomed ten new students into the Kane Family Foundation Scholarship Program. And next Tuesday, we will celebrate the achievements of our May 2009 graduates at the Annual Alumni Breakfast.
 
We've also updated our online information about the upcoming alumni cruise to give you more details about pricing and cabin options. We hope you'll visit the cruise website and plan to join us in the Western Caribbean in February 2010!
 
Sincerely,
