Greetings from Joe Vidulich, SPA/BA '08 President of the Alumni Association

It’s officially autumn in Washington! The weather has shifted abruptly here in the last week, and I know that means holidays are top of mind. The Alumni Board will be hosting another holiday reception this year, and it’s on the brand new (very impressive) East Campus this year. All the details are here. I hope you’ll join us!
 
For those of you outside of DC, there will be another holiday-themed event for local alumni in LA and San Francisco. As has become tradition for the DC community, we will participate in Wreaths Across America at Arlington National Cemetery on December 16. I’m thrilled that this event is expanding to the left coast this year!
 
For all who were able to return to campus last month for All-American Weekend, THANK YOU. Attendance was amazing this year, and I know from talking with many of you, that good times were had by all! Make sure to check out all the many photos of the festivities here.
 
Let’s keep the good times rolling! You can join in the planning for next year by contacting Carla Gochicoa, associate director of alumni programs, at gochicoa@american.edu. Next year we will be celebrating reunions for several classes, including my 10-year anniversary for the class of 2008! #IAmOld
 
Not on campus as much as you’d like? You can still keep up-to-date about all that’s happening at AU by signing up for The Eagle’s new newsletter. It’s a great way to keep connected. View their latest issue or sign up to receive regular updates. 
 
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
