Dear Alumni and Friends,
Happy Summer to all. I hope you’ve been having your fill of barbecues and sunshine. While we’ve all been enjoying ourselves this summer, Shenandoah has remained busy, hosting multiple orientations for incoming freshmen to the university. I’ve been following Shenandoah’s social media and love seeing new faces that look so excited to start a new chapter in their lives. I know Shenandoah will offer these students a wonderful place to thrive not only academically, but also emotionally and socially. Shenandoah will soon become their new family.
If your summer allows, I hope you will join in on some of the fun activities the Alumni Association is offering over the summer. This Friday, we host the first-ever Alumni Night at D.C. United. Tickets are going fast, so to make sure you get a seat, visit https://fevo.me/shenandoahu. The following weekend, don’t miss Swarm the Park at Kings Dominion on Saturday, July 20. Tickets are discounted for all Hornets – students, faculty, staff, and alumni – and their family and friends are welcome. To purchase tickets, visit https://cf-kd.secure.accesso.com/embed/login.php?emerchant_id=400. The username and password are both KDHORNETS.
August is also a fun-filled month as well, with Swarm the Park at Hersheypark on Saturday, Aug. 10. To purchase tickets, visit https://www.su.edu/alumni/alumni-events/swarm-the-park/. And, we will end the month with Alumni Night at the Open Late Concert Series at the National Sporting Library & Museum on Friday, Aug. 30. I hope to see some new and familiar faces at these events!
Students will be heading back to campus before we know it for the fall 2019 semester. We wish you all good luck in the upcoming school year!
