A fantastic day to kick-off the “Inferno Firepit”
Alverno’s Athletic Field Dedication Ceremony and Tailgate Party BY BRENDA MANRY ALPHA STAFF WRITER
“If someone were to have scripted the day, it would have been exactly as it turned out. What a fantastic day!” said Alverno Director of Athletics, Brad Duckworth, at the dedication ceremony for Alverno College’s new athletic field.
tailgate, President Mary Meehan shared some insight about the activities planned for the day. “This really is a family event. We’ve invited the local community to come and join us for the tailgate Alverno President, Mary Meehan party and enjoy all addresses the crowd of over 400 of the festivities attendees during the dedication planned for ceremony with Alverno Director of today.” Athletics, Brad Duckworth.

BY SOPHIA WATTLETON ALPHA STAFF WRITER
In a memorial service Sept. 11 at the Alverno College Chapel, family, friends and colleagues gathered to remember the legacy of Siri Voskuil, a woman who many say changed their lives. Siri Voskuil was born August 18, 1950, in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin, and died July 1, 2007. She received her undergraduate degree in 1991 at the University of WisconsinWhitewater and her master’s and doctorate degrees at Marquette University. In her 7 years as an instructor at Alverno College, Voskuil inspired many with her courage and passion as a mother, grandmother, teacher, mentor, woman and friend. Alverno Alumna Melissa
Bodoh said when she was going through difficult times in her life Voskuil helped her find strength. “Siri helped me find myself and realize that I can rise to meet any challenge,” she said. Like Melissa, many of Voskuil’s students remembered how she urged them to explore their own worlds. They said that Voskuil’s encouragement is reflected in their passion and advocacy for social justice for all children. Voskuil will not only be remembered for her commitment to professional development, but also for her great recommendations in wine. At the memorial, Alverno staff reminisced about shared toasts and laughter with Voskuil at conferences and special gatherings. See VOSKUIL Page 5
Alpha Readers, The semester is winding down and the holiday season is in full swing, a perfect time for reflection. I’m graduating in a few weeks so what a great opportunity for me to write my first and last letter from the editor, for my school’s only student-created/produced newspaper. People seem to be reading Alpha more than I can remember. We thank you for reading and reacting to our stories – please keep your comments, ideas and story beat requests coming! You too can be an Alpha staff writer, either by taking CLD/PCM 421 as a course or simply by submitting your work for consideration. You can also contribute as a photographer or can design graphics or advertisements without being in the class itself. Once you’re at a point where you can take 400-level courses, you can take CLD/PCM 421 as an In-dependent Study to become part of the editorial staff. If you’re interested in any of the above, be sure to drop Christy Steele an email at firstname.lastname@example.org, as she will continue to serve as the paper’s faculty advisor in spring 2008. If you have ideas now, connect with her before the semester begins so she can start planning to incorporate your contributions. I’ve had a phenomenal experience this semester, serving primarily as Production Editor but also as co-Editor-in-Chief. Aside from editing stories however, I maximized my Independent Study opportunity. I designed the Alpha masthead and a few advertisements in Adobe Illustrator, collaborated with Managing Editor Julie Gilboy, in assigning and tracking articles each class using social media tools like Yahoo Groups and Instant Messenger. I even wrote several articles including one feature story. I also assisted Julie with creating the first-ever Alpha Staffbook for policies and procedures, developed my digital photography skills and sought out photos and graphics using stock photography for other student’s articles as well as my own. I drove the process of getting Alpha back on Alverno’s intranet. To top things off for our December issue, I designed Pagepage 5 8 using Adobe InDesign. This semester has been a dream because I was able to pick the path that I wanted to explore for my experience, and you can too; the options are truly limitless. Being on the Alpha Staff is a memorable experience and it really does make an impact on the school’s culture and history. Please keep the progressive writing, photos and design elements alive and join the staff and make Alpha a part of your Alverno experience too. As I look forward to my graduation this December, I have had one of the best semesters here at Alverno. It was a perfect ending to my journey as an Alverno student.

CONNECT@MMI is our one-stop social spot @MMI. CONNECT = PEOPLE + INFORM + SHARE + DISCUSS It's a collaborative mash-up of content, knowledge, opinion and news. The big news is to officially announce "conversation mode," making DISCUSS@MMI feel a lot more like Facebook or Google+ versus just the basic bursts of information, like Twitter. We (Employee Communications + Collaboration & eBusiness IT + MOST) turned conversation mode on a few weeks ago now, so it really isn't new news. But in case you didn't notice, now you can reply inline to a post and follow the conversation much easier. This was our final tweak to "phase 1" of our grand plan to infuse social media into the workplace. The CONNECT@MMI site has already had a few redesigns in its short life.
