Wow! What a Ride!
Friday, April 17, 2015
From Pittsburgh to New York to Dayton to Charlotte, our basketball team really put on a good showing in March, which had a bunch of alumni, students, and friends of the university dancing. But the real thrill of it all from the alumni office perspective was the number of alumni and friends of the university who showed up to support the team during the March madness run. It's amazing how sports can bring so many people from different walks of life together.
This past month the alumni office was on the road quite a bit, with stops in the aforementioned locations along with Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia. In those cities we held alumni receptions prior to the Wizards and Flyers games. Both events were sold out and included several young alumni and former athletes, which is a trend we are starting see. Hey young alums, keep it up!
Back in the Burgh, Mo-Madness was all the rage, with red billboards lit up all over the city telling our story as it unfolded.PNC and Highmark alumni came together for a joint corporate alumni luncheon at Valozzis downtown, and about 125 folks attended the legacy recognition reception program held on campus in Sewall Center.
As you can see, lots of fun and exciting happenings are going on and hopefully we will see you out and about at one of our upcoming events.
