     Alumni Newsletter

    Previously the last time the Alumni published a newsletter was in 1970. With the Alumni President John Wiese spearheading it we are working to improve communication to all of our alumni, and one of those ways is the plan to mail out a semi annual newsletter to all of the alumni. We mailed the first one out at the beginning of August and there will be a second one coming later this fall.
