Greetings from Andrea Murino, SPA/BA '98

Andrea Murino

As 2016 draws to a close, so, too, does my term as your Alumni Board President. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working with the other volunteers, faculty, staff, and leadership of our university. I look forward to new opportunities for involvement, and there are so many from which to choose. Consider taking a role yourself, whether that's being a mentor, hosting a dinner with students, getting back to campus for an event, joining your local community of Eagle alumni for an event, or even becoming the point of contact for a community of AU alumni in your area. You can see the many options for yourself on our website.

In the months to come, AU will welcome a new president as our alumnus-in-chief, President Neil Kerwin, returns to the classroom. Words cannot properly describe the lasting impact that President Kerwin has had on AU. This institution has reached new heights under his leadership and we are so very fortunate for the many successes that he helped engineer during his tenure. It gives me great pride to have contributed to this effort, even if only in a small way.  

Finally, I am thrilled to report that my dear friend Joe Vidulich, SPA/BA '08, who has served as vice president of the Alumni Board for two years, in addition to a host of other leadership roles within the university, will be elevated to Alumni Board president. He believes in this place and he will work tirelessly to engage you in the life of the university. I know that you will be in great hands.  

I want to thank you all for giving me the opportunity to serve. It has been a wonderful ride in every way.  

I wish you and your loved ones all the best for a very happy holiday season.
