2016 seems to be a distant blur as 2017 came fast and we are now facing spring. I love the promise and fresh perspective this season brings: new life, boundless potential and beauty everywhere you look. It’s hard to be negative when the world is covered with so much sunshine.
The CSU Alumni Association and regional chapters grow every day as we continue to see students cross over into proud alumni. This growth is exciting! I always enjoy meeting you all at our networking socials, graduation and connecting with you through our social media channels. Our alumni accomplish great things and we are so proud of each and every one of you.
We love hearing what you are up to in your careers, families and communities. Hearing your stories of growth and accomplishment never gets old. You have refused to settle at status quo and instead choose to reach for your dreams. Your hard work is paying off!
The most unique part of the CSU community is that our Knights are literally all over the world but still share a common bond and enjoy connecting with one another. Through social media, clubs and organizations, SAE sponsored events and your own local meet-ups, you have proven that an online education does not have to lack school pride and camaraderie.
As always, I would love to hear from you! Please share any ideas you have to further promote engagement with your alumni community. If you have a story idea or have accomplished something you would like to share in a future publication, connect with me.
None of this is possible without each and every one of you. Together, we can rise to exciting heights.
