What a time to be affiliated with Syracuse University! Last week, we saw an extraordinary explosion of orange on campus and in neighboring communities…and, no doubt, there were orange dots all over the globe where SU alumni and fans reside. It was thrilling to watch the deep NCAA championship run by both our men’s and women’s basketball teams. They made us proud with their incredible effort, perseverance and sportsmanship. Orange pride runs deep and the bond is strong!
The strength of the SU alumni bond has been evident on my recent travels with members of Whitman’s development team to share the great things happening at Whitman with alumni in Los Angeles, Boston, New Jersey, Northern New York City and Washington, D.C. I would like to extend a special thank you to several SU colleagues who helped make the events special: Joan Adler, assistant vice president of regional programs, and her team at the SU Los Angeles office; Stephanie Cook, executive director for advancement, and her team at the Lubin House; and Mary A. Anagnost, executive director, regional operations, and her team at the Greenberg House.
Thanks, also, to all of you who attended one of the meet and greets. It was a pleasure getting to know so many Whitman alumni. I hope you were energized by all of the exciting updates we shared and are now motivated to engage with Whitman in a way that works for you. If you haven’t, yet, completed the engagement survey, please consider doing so. A quick few minutes and your responses really do help in our planning efforts.
If we haven’t made it to your city yet, we may be coming soon! We are looking to visit other areas of the country in the coming months. Please check our upcoming events calendar in future newsletters, and be sure to save the date for Orange Central Homecoming 2016, which is set for September 15-18.
There are many ways to stay connected with Whitman including our LinkedIn group, Twitter, Facebook and Whitman.syr.edu. I also encourage you to keep your contact details current to make sure you don’t miss any important news from Whitman or SU.
