Message from Deb Lundahl, Director of Development and Alumni Relations
If you were back on campus this fall or returned for Homecoming, you were probably pleased to see the wonderful changes and updates that have taken place on campus. J.G.W. Lewis Drive is now a pedestrian walkway that meanders between the west end of campus beginning at the roundabout and continues to the east end of campus ending at Schreiner Drive. It is a beautiful improvement to campus. You would also have seen work being done on the third floor of the Carhart Science Building and enjoyed being able to take the elevator to the Dale Planetarium.
We had golf tournaments in Omaha and Dakota Dunes, S. Dak.; we hope you can join us next year on July 17 for Omaha Golf and Aug. 23 for Dakota Dunes Golf. We also want to acknowledge Charlie Wendt for his many years of service on the Omaha Golf Committee. Charlie has moved to the San Diego area and we will miss him very much.
It was wonderful to see so many of you during Homecoming this year. In addition to the Honored Classes of 1949,1959,1969,1979, 1984, 1989 and 1999, we had affinity reunions for speech communication majors, track participants from 1975 to 1985 and the 1949 Football Team.
We would like to again offer congratulations to the Outstanding Alumni Award recipients, Alumni Service Award recipient and the Hall of Fame inductees. Thank you to all of you who returned this year to celebrate homecoming this year. For those of you who like to plan early, Homecoming 2010 will be Sept. 24-26.
