Dear Alumni, The After College spotlights in this issue feature snapshots
of talented College of Arts & Sciences graduates who easily and eagerly talk about their careers in the paralegal and journalism fields, attributing their paths and successes directly to their alma mater. These alumni credit treasured faculty members as mentors, noting and praising their encouragement and support. Regardless of major or field, stories of the road less traveled and strong faculty influences have traditionally served as a common bond among each generation of Suffolk alumni. A number of these alumni have sustained mutual bonds or reconnected with one another through the Online Community, (http://www.alumniconnections.com/olc/pub/SUF/) which is sponsored by the Alumni Association. This growing resource, along with the Alumni Career Advisory Network, is a valuable tool for global networking either personally or professionally. During this challenging economy, alumni can learn from each other’s professional expertise and relationships. This is also a wonderful opportunity to share classroom memories or discuss upcoming reunions. I feel touched by the stories alumni share about their time as students, and value the interaction and engagement many alumni demonstrate through volunteering, attendance at programs, and participation in the Annual Fund. How alumni respond to the call to give back to our alma mater through
“time, talent, and treasure” is the foundation of the Alumni Association. The College of Arts & Sciences Alumni Board of Directors, a group of dedicated volunteers led by Dennis Walczewski, BS ’70, has identified initiatives to engage their fellow alumni and bring their professional talents and experiences to the CAS students in the classroom. Please keep an eye on upcoming emails about these opportunities as we continue to build the Alumni Association. During the coming year, the Suffolk University Alumni Association will offer programming across the country that provides lifelong learning, career, or social opportunities. Please check in regularly to view updated program listings on the Alumni Association Web page, http://www.suffolk.edu/alumni. I look forward to hearing your stories and seeing you at upcoming programs. Thank you for your lifelong association with Suffolk University. Cordially,
Laura M. Piscopo, BA ’02 Director of Alumni Relations College of Arts & Sciences
