Willamette University, Students at the Mill Stream

May 2013

Outside class

Read President Thorsett's letter about recently published discussions from a private Sigma Chi Facebook group

Commencement is this weekend, and if you haven't already seen the video of the tent being put up on the Quad, hop over to the Willamette University Facebook page. It might bring back a fond memory or two.

While students depart, the rest of us are gearing up for a busy summer. Among other things, the Sparks Athletic Center renovation project begins. Alumni are invited to a kickoff ceremony, where you can learn more and take a pre-construction tour.

Sparks Athletic Center Renewal Ceremony

Sparks Athletic Center Lobby

Remember that the travel program will be rafting the Deschutes river and cruising through France soon. Visit the travel website for details and to sign up before the spots are gone.

Last but certainly not least, Teresa Hudkins '69, longtime director of admission at WU, is retiring. A celebration event is in the works (and will likely take place the first week of June), but we encourage alumni to send in memory book submissions right now to alumni@willamette.edu. These should be 500 words or fewer and need to be received by Friday, May 24. We'll be compiling the entries for Teresa prior to her departure.
