February E-newsletter

The alumni events held Jan. 24–26 in Fort Myers and the Villages in Lady Lake, Florida, were a huge success. Many University of Wisconsin-Platteville alumni met for a social and heard the chancellor discuss the current state of our university and future plans—for both proposed new buildings and new educational opportunities/priorities. Steve Ramig, Executive Director of Development and Alumni Engagement, and his development staff were also on hand to answer questions.

The Alumni Association board of directors met on Jan. 28. My thanks to all the directors who attended and for work done off campus to ensure a more viable association which will provide more opportunities for alumni to become engaged.

The Fighting Saints hockey game on Feb. 17 in Dubuque, Iowa, was very popular and we quickly ran out of tickets. For those planning to attend, UW-Platteville representatives will have a will-call table located in the entry lobby of the arena. Don’t forget to come early for the pre-game social, featuring snacks and beverages, beginning at 6 p.m. in the Mystique Community Room in the Ice Center. The puck drops at 7 p.m.

Two major alumni events will be held in Arizona in March: March 26 in Tuscon and March 28 in Mesa.
