Alumni Connections: Hear the Roar
September 2009
Jen HaneDear ,
 
The fall semester is off to a great start at your alma mater - with new recognition for UCCS colleges and programs, as well as the LEED Gold certification of the Science and Engineering Building, you've got many reasons to be proud.
 
If you haven't already done so, make sure to join us for an upcoming "Roar on the Road" event in Pueblo, Denver or Colorado Springs. You can learn more about "Roar on the Road" online.
 
In addition, we'd love for you to visit us on campus in October for a special alumni event entitled "Your Career: Creative Strategies to Get Ahead." The event is free for all UCCS alumni and includes brunch, a campus update from the Chancellor, and an optional tour of the campus.
 
Later that month, on October 16 at 7:30 a.m. in University Center Room 302, the College of Business will be hosting a special alumni event entitled "Crash Course in City Budget 101." Watch your email for more information, or RSVP to Jana Hyde at (719) 255-3755.
 
We hope to see you soon!
