Alumni Connections: Hear the Roar
November 2009
Jen HaneDear ,
Welcome to the November issue of Alumni Connections: Hear the Roar. As the end of the year approaches, we have a few more opportunities for you to reconnect with your alma mater.
Join us for Roar on the Road in Colorado Springs on November 17 at 5:30 p.m. (tonight!) to share your feedback on the Alumni and Friends Association. Not able to make it? We'll be scheduling additional event dates and locations through 2010, and more information will be available soon.
On December 11 at 5:30 p.m., we'll be returning to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo for our annual UCCS Alumni Night at Winter Wildland. This event is a great opportunity for the whole family, and more details will be available soon.
Thank you for your continued involvement with the UCCS Alumni and Friends Association - we appreciate your friendship and support!
