"This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it."
--Psalm 118:24
Dear Alumnus,
  
If you are reading this--thank you!  With more than 32,000 Concordia University Wisconsin alumni, we are thankful when we can share the wonderful news of CUW--as well as your news--with each other through this monthly e-newsletter! We do not always have current emails for all of our alumni, so if you find this monthly communication informative and gratifying, please make sure to share it with your fellow CUW classmates. We would also like to share your news in the Concordian, and the deadline for the news updates is January 19th.  
 
As Psalm 118:24 states, "Let us rejoice and be glad in it," and we have a lot to rejoice about at CUW. We are rejoicing and celebrating our 2017 Athletic Hall of Fame inductees, Eric Kittel's signing, 25th anniversary of SAPHE, the 90s Reunion and you--our wonderful alumni. Make sure to check out the articles below and save the dates for the many upcoming events.
 
As always, please feel free to email me with your suggestions and ideas for articles and events. 

Serving Him and you,

Michelle "Mickie" Wagner '96
