Dear Alumni and Friends,

October 2010 By

As president of your Engineering Alumni Chapter this year, I am excited to share with you our first initiative we are calling "Game Day with the Dean." Starting this weekend on Oct. 2, the dean, leadership of the school and our engineering student ambassadors will be hosting all engineering alumni for two hours prior to kickoff of Ole Miss vs. Kentucky in front of our new home, the Old Chemistry Building. There will be food, fellowship and fun for those in attendance, and all are welcome to participate in these festivities. In addition to this weekend, we will be hosting a tent on Nov. 6 for the ULL game, which is homecoming, and the Nov. 27 game versus Mississippi State.

Our goal this fall is to reconnect with alumni and build new relationships. We want to establish an active alumni chapter that can give back to the School of Engineering. There are so many opportunities for service, some of which include recruiting or mentoring students and assisting with engineering week. By now, you should have received a postcard with this information outlined, and we hope you will stop by and say hello.

We look forward to seeing you this weekend and in the future as we celebrate Game Day with the Dean for your School of Engineering. If you have specific questions or thoughts and would like to get more information about how to get involved with the Ole Miss Engineering Alumni Chapter, contact Joshua E. Waggoner at waggoner@olemiss.edu or 662-915-1601.

I hope to see you soon!

Ryan A. Holmes
President, Engineering Alumni Chapter
