Happy New Year! The new year is a time of action, and in this spirit, we have two ways you can assist us to serve Alverno and our students in 2013. We ask for your help by reading the letter below from the Advocacy/Lobbying Task Force regarding student aid and deciding how you might help, and by taking the following alumnae survey. By taking action you will help current and fellow students. Thank you for all you do!

Perhaps you've seen elements of our recent, and still ongoing, marketing campaign. With the headline, "Invest in You," we highlight why an Alverno College education begins a lifelong learning process that will benefit graduates personally and professionally over the course of their careers and throughout their lives. We think that as alumnae, you have valuable input to share regarding this very topic. Please take a few minutes to complete this brief (seven question) survey to help us better understand what an Alverno education means to you.

Registration for this event will open January 18th at www.alverno.edu/alumnae.
