Alumni Connections: Hear the Roar, January 2010
Jen HaneDear ,
As we begin the new Calendar Year at UCCS, I encourage you to find ways that you can become more involved with your alma mater in 2010. The time to make an impact is now.
As you'll see on the right panel of this newsletter, we have multiple events scheduled throughout the spring semester (and more to be announced) that will allow you to come back to campus or meet at a local restaurant, network with fellow graduates, and tell us how you'd like to see the Alumni and Friends Association grow.
In addition, we're working to launch a volunteer program later in the spring semester that will allow you to give back to campus in a way you might not have considered - as a recruiter, a mentor, a guest speaker, a club advisor, and more. You can read more about the program and share your feedback below.
We hope the new year finds you well, and we look forward to seeing you soon!

This Month, We're Profiling You
Students in LodgeFor the past several months, we've been featuring profiles of UCCS alumni in each edition of Alumni Connections: Hear the Roar. This month, we'd like to turn the tables and ask you to take a look at your own commitments and talents and consider how you can make an impact at your alma mater.
We've been doing research on launching an Alumni Volunteer Program that would allow you to participate in moving your alma mater forward - whether you've stayed in the Pikes Peak Region or chosen to settle down elsewhere. Before we get started, we'd like to hear how you think you can best make a difference - whether in recruitment, mentoring, campus activities, or an idea of your own - so we can create a program that best meets your needs.
If you'd like to share your input, please take just a few minutes to complete our Alumni Association Volunteer Program Survey. We think you'll be surprised about all the ways in which you can make a contribution!

UCCS Alumni Night at Theaterworks
Irma VepOn December 23, a group of alumni met at the Dusty Loo Bon Vivant Theatre for our first UCCS Alumni Night at THEATREWORKS. The evening started out with a lively networking reception at the theatre. We were thrilled to have Chancellor Pam Shockley-Zalabak join us for the reception and the hilarious play that followed. The Mystery of Irma Vep was laugh out loud funny!
The UCCS Alumni Advisory Board would like to thank THEATREWORKS Executive Director, Drew Martorella, and staff for such a friendly reception and a fabulously fun evening!
The next Alumni Night at THEATREWORKS will take place in May. We will once again enjoy a networking reception and the play Arsenic and Old Lace. Tickets are $25 and will be available in March.  Please feel free to bring a guest.
Arsenic & Old Lace
Arsenic and Old Lace
They are two of the dearest, sweetest old ladies who have ever walked the earth, and they serve the nicest homemade elderberry wine. It packs quite a kick. There's a playwright in the living room, bodies in the basement and Teddy Roosevelt running up stairs to take San Juan Hill.
