Alumni Connections:
March 2010
Jen HaneDear ,
 
Greetings from the UCCS Alumni and Friends Association!
 
During the last two weeks, you should have received a printed copy of our annual newsletter, The Roar. If you did not find a copy in your mailbox, it may mean that your mailing address is not correct in our database. To ensure your record is correct, you can update your contact information online.
 
As you'll see on the right panel of this newsletter, we're continuing to expand the Roar on the Road program. In April, we'll be visiting three locations in the Pacific Northwest after spending time in March in Kansas City, Scottsdale, and Washington, DC. If you're interested in helping to organize an alumni networking event in your area, let us know.
 
We hope to meet you at a special event soon!
