The newly organized United Tribes Alumni Association took another step forward by hosting a banquet for college alumni October 6 during the college’s Homecoming Week, sponsored by the Institutional Advancement and Career Development departments.
The event began with campus tours, then a social, before sitting down to a wonderful meal catered by Famous Dave’s. Opening remarks came from Dr. Russell Swagger, VP Student and Campus Services. The highlight was introduction of the 2011-12 Student Senate candidates.
Mark Mindt, Career Development Director, described the new Thunderbird Alumni Card. The $25 annual card identifies the holder as a member in the college’s alumni association. And the perks are terrific!
Since this is the organization’s start-up, the first-year offerings are mighty generous: free admission to all of the home-court basketball games of the United Tribes THUNDERBIRDS (both the men’s and women’s games) and free admission as a guest to the 2012 United Tribes International Powwow. How about that for starters!
All United Tribes alumni are eligible.
To take advantage of this inaugural offer and become a charter member, contact Charisse Fandrich in the Institutional Advancement office: 701-255-3285 x 1207, firstname.lastname@example.org.
More alumni events are in the works, including more dinners; one in conjunction with graduation in the spring and another during student orientation in August. Let us know about other things you’d like the alumni association to do.
United Tribes is reaching out to alumni. We invite you and your families to get involved and get engaged back on the campus again!
