Dear ,
 
Jen HaneAs we continue to develop our alumni programming, I am pleased to welcome to you to an e-newsletter specifically designed for alumni from the College of Letters, Arts and Sciences (LAS).
 
In partnership with the College, we will be contacting you monthly with information on the programs, faculty and news that are of highest interest to you. We hope you will enjoy the enhanced focus of this publication and that it will help to keep you connected to UCCS.

Marge Mistry: the Voice of UCCS Radio
 
microphone"So tell me what you know" - a favorite opening line of Marge Mistry, instructor in the LAS Languages and Cultures department and "voice" of Radio UCCS. No doubt, it's Mistry's voice we hear conversing with faculty, staff or students on the internet radio, but she's doing much more than just talking. Getting your ideas and information out to a community of people who are passionate about the things you are is what Mistry specializes in. (More)
