Oswego Matters

Betsy OberstI am excited to share this latest edition of our alumni magazine with you! As you can see, we have begun a redesign under new magazine designer Jennifer Broderick, to freshen our look and bring you content in new and different ways. We know people love our magazine, so we hope you like our new look—which will continue to evolve—and we welcome your feedback!

We’ll also be adding more online content and redesigning our online magazine … look for those changes to come soon. Check out our new mobile-friendly, redesigned website at alumni.oswego.edu in coming weeks, as well.

As we begin the new academic year here on campus, I am also delighted to welcome the newest member of our alumni team, Kerisha Lewis ’18. She joined us this summer as assistant director of student-alumni engagement. Kerisha will work with our growing student programming to link students to alumni and build Laker pride and tradition, in addition to assisting with Reunion groups and other alumni programming. Malcolm Huggins has also joined our Annual Fund team after several years in the Athletic Department.

As we enhance our communications with our 85,000+ alumni in additional (and more cost-effective!) ways, we continue to expand our outreach on our social media channels. So please “like” us on Facebook (Oswego Alumni), Twitter, Instagram, etc. so you don’t miss out on any news or events! Also, please make sure we have your current email address, as some of our event invitations now are only sent via email. All of these communication vehicles allow us to share more things with you on a regular basis, as well as keep you connected to more Oswego alumni!

And please consider joining us as a volunteer. Join the Reunion 2019 Engagement and Planning Committee for your class (or group). Or come back to campus to speak in classes as part of our ever-growing Alumni-In-Residence (AIR) program, sign up to help mentor students or recent grads as part of the Alumni Sharing Knowledge (ASK) program or join our growing Local Lakers network of volunteers to help plan Oswego events in your area.

However you choose to stay connected to or engaged with Oswego, we welcome your involvement. If you get the chance to visit campus, please make sure a stop at King Alumni Hall is on your list. Browse our alumni memorabilia and yearbooks, and share your stories with us.

We hope to see you soon!

With Laker pride,
