Welcome Alumni & Friends!
Thank you for your patience over the past year as we have been revamping many events and creating new programming to better serve our Alumni. We have some exciting things coming your way!
First, I’d like to invite you all back to campus. If it has been a couple of years since you visited, you’ll be amazed by the campus transformations. The Updike Hall for Science, Engineering, and Mathematics, The VU Agricultural Center, the and the Jefferson Student Union are just a few of the projects to enhance the educational overall student experience. Kimmell Park was also renovated and makes a wonderful addition to campus for students and the community. In addition, the Learning Resource Center (Library) has reopened after a multimillion dollar renovation to offer support services for all students. Construction of the French Quarter Housing Complex is underway with plans to open in the fall. I highly encourage you to visit campus soon for a walk down memory lane and to see the future of VU! Let us know when you are coming and we’d be happy to give a guided tour.
We have found one of our most impactful recruitment and retention tools is as simple as sharing our alumni stories! Students are able to connect with stories from alumni, especially with similar backgrounds or same major. Hearing a story about a certain struggle an alum had and how they overcame may give that student the push they need to get through finals week, or hearing a story from an alumni in a career field could help a future student decide on that major. We encourage you to reach out and share your VU Story with us as help to our future alumni!
We strive to provide the best service to our alumni, students, and supporters. The Foundation and Alumni team look forward to working with you as we continue to transform our Alumni Association. If you would like to be involved or have suggestions, please contact me!
We hope to see you on campus soon!
