March E-newsletter


On Feb. 17, 125 alumni met at the Mystique Community Ice Center in Dubuque, Iowa, to watch the Fighting Saints hockey team in action, and fun, fellowship, and food!

Two major alumni events in Arizona are on the March calendar: March 26 in Tucson and March 28 in Mesa. One highlight at Mesa—a baseball game between the world champion Chicago Cubs and the San Francisco Giants. The social starts at 11:35 a.m. with the first pitch at 1:05 p.m. Contact the alumni office at 608.342.1811 for more details.

March means nominations. Consider nominating an alumni for the following awards: Distinguished Alumni, Outstanding Alumni, or Athletic Hall of Fame. All nominations must be received in the Development and Alumni Engagement office by March 31.

Do you want to become a more involved alumni?  We have the answer. There are four openings on the Alumni Association Board of Directors. It is a rewarding (and learning) experience. Click here for more information or feel free to call me at 608.498.2801. Voting for board members will be April 29 at our board of directors meeting. 


It officially starts March 20. Remember to “spring ahead” on March 12 as daylight savings time returns.

The 26th annual Leadership Awards Ceremony will be held Sunday, April 23 from 2–4 p.m. in the Center for the Arts.

“Ambition is the path to success. Persistence is the vehicle you arrive in.” - William Eardley IV

Forever. Pioneers.
