Alumni Connections: College of Letters, Arts and Sciences, November 2010

Jennifer HaneYou'll notice a few changes in this month's issue of Alumni Connections - primarily the fact that we're now using a new email marketing tool to communicate with you. Our hope is that this new platform will allow us to better manage your communication preferences and create a reading experience that is more enjoyable for you. We'll continue fine-tuning the system in the months ahead, so please feel free to share any feedback on design or content via email - we value your opinion.

Best wishes for a safe and happy holiday season,
