Willamette University, Students at the Mill Stream

September 2012

RaftingThere are lines at the Bistro again. There are students slacklining between the trees next to the Mill Stream. Professors are dressed up.

It's the fall semester.

For alumni, this means Career Network programming, including Seven Cities, One Night. These regional getting-to-know-you events (networking, anyone?) come to a city near you Oct. 15. More information

If you're in Salem this month, come along to McMenamins Boon’s Treasury on Tuesday, Sept. 18 from 5 - 9 p.m. A portion of all dinner and drink sales from the evening will go to Willamette Academy, WU's lauded college access program for local high school students. More information about Willamette Academy

Also, remember that this year's alumni awards nominations are open -- think of fellow alumni who are leaders in business, extra-dedicated Bearcats or young stars, and make your nomination! Nominations are open until Dec. 31.

The Scene is approaching your mailbox as we type. Within a couple weeks you'll have it, and we hope you'll conduct the usual hunt for our friend Tufton Beamish. We got a little sneakier this time...

Happy (sunny) September.
