Dear Concordia Alumna/us,
I am so excited for you!  There are new things and old things that you will have an opportunity to participate in during the upcoming months. With your feedback through the survey, newsletter and facebook page, we have been working on offering engagement with CUAA that matters most to you.  We hope we are listening well!
In His Service,

Tailgating and Chalk Talk - October 7th in Ft. Wayne
We're going on the road with the team and hosting some good old-fashioned football tailgating fun!  Join us at the University of St. Francis to see the undefeated Concordia Cardinals take on the Cougars.  We've reserved a parking area with room for your own feast.  We'll bring the swag and provide the bus for an exclusive "chalk talk" by former Assistant Coach turned Director of Admissions, Chance Childers.  Visit the alumni website for more details and registration.  
A Special Night for Alumni - 40th Anniversary of 
Boar's Head Festival

In celebration of a Boar's Head Festival milestone anniversary, you are invited to participate in an exclusive alumni performance on Friday night, December 1st.  Festival directors Gerard Dzuiblinski and Brian Altevogt are making special arrangements for alumni to reprise past roles.  Registration is needed to assign roles and costumes.  For those who prefer to attend this festive evening in the audience, there will be a ticketed alumni reception prior to the performance.  Watch the alumni website for more details!

A Christmas Tradition for All
You and your family are invited to participate in the inaugural A Manor Christmas, a truly memorable and very merry weekend with no cost for admission.  The Earhart Manor and grounds will be transformed into a home filled with Christmas cheer and a Christkindlmarkt complete with a festival of trees, entertainment for all ages and children's activities.  There is still time to volunteer, become a sponsor and share your gift of music or dramatic skill. 
Career Services and Engagement for Alumni
The Office of Career Engagement & Industry Relations (CEIR) is designed to build a vibrant culture that blends and strengthens academic/professional development and industry relations both in and out of the classroom.  An important connection to alumni will help students learn from industry leaders and potential employers in an intentional way.  Alumni seeking job opportunities have access to Handshake, a service through CEIR, to explore available jobs and internships and use resource and news aids.  
Class of 1968 - The Time is Drawing Near 
If you graduated with the CLJC Class of 1968, we're looking for you! The 50th Reunion Committee, a group of your classmates, is just forming to plan a weekend of reminiscing and renewing on May 19-20, 2018.  For additional information, email CUAA Alumni Director Laura Thomas or call her at (734) 995-7318.
