Recently the Office of Alumni Relations moved to Cooper Hall, 3rd floor. The office is a spacious and pleasant location, great for hosting alumni visitors as they are back on campus. You are invited to stop by next time you are back to SC for a visit. But in the mean time, we will be doing our best to come to you. Upcoming alumni events that are in the planning process for the first half of 2011 will take place in Omaha, NE; Aledo, IL area; Colorado Springs, CO; Dallas/Fr. Worth, TX; Wichita, KS and an event in Minden, NE on March 26th. If you live within driving distance of any of the above locations or happen to be traveling in those areas, it would be a blessing to have you join us for any of the alumni events! If you would like to learn more about these events or any alumni related happenings, feel free to email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-800-346-1017 ext. 228.
