Dear Alumnus/a,
 
It is an exciting time of year for CUW. In less than two weeks, our traditional undergraduate students will be moving back onto campus. Our faculty and staff are gearing up for a new semester and welcoming the students back. For those of us who have graduated, our seasons are a little different after college. As we consider the academic theme for this year, "Gifted by Grace, Prepared for His Purpose," we as your alma mater's alumni relations, are here to continue serving you and preparing you in all aspects of your life.
 
In order to serve you better, we want to know what articles, topics, and events most interest you. Your feedback is very important to us and will be incorporated into future newsletters, activities, and offerings. Please click here to take a short survey. Thank you, and may your day be filled with God's blessings.
 
Serving Him and you,

Michelle "Mickie" Wagner '96
