Message from your Alumni Engagement Officer

Dear alumni and friends, 

As the hustle and bustle of fall has begun, campus is booming with thousands of new students who have stepped foot on campus to begin their journey as Warriors and AHSSIEs. It feels like not long ago, I was this student, excited to start this chapter of my life. There will be so many accomplishments over the years to come and I can’t wait to be here to celebrate them.  

To introduce myself: I am the Alumni Engagement Officer, and I started this role on July 31. I am a graduate of the Faculty (BA, '15, Recreation and Sport Business). Being able to come back to my home Faculty to work has been heartwarming.  

I am very excited to continually connect with you and look forward to further meetings. Whether that is at an event, through 10KC Office Hours or a phone call, I am more than happy to get to know you. Please reach out if I can ever assist or if you would simply like to chat.  

Enjoy the fall weather and all the festivities that go along with it!
