Greetings, CFANS alumni and friends!

I hope you are enjoying this summer season. July 1st marks the start of a new year of activity and programming for the CFANS Alumni Society. Our newly adopted mission states, “Our mission is to foster relationships that benefit our college, alumni, students, and friends.” This year we are planning many opportunities for alumni to be engaged, ranging from attending the CFANS Beer and Brats Party before the Homecoming parade, learning about current research projects at Classes Without Quizzes, mentoring a student, or working on an Alumni Society committee in support of our mission. On behalf of the Alumni Board of Directors I would like to thank you for your support - past and present - and encourage you all to get more involved in our society in the future. To learn about volunteer opportunities please visit our website.

I am honored to serve the CFANS alumni community as the President of the Alumni board this year. Please contact me at or the CFANS alumni staff if you have any questions or suggestions. Have a great year – and Go Gophers!
