Greetings from Chip Griffin

Chip Griffin

It's the dog days of summer -- at least here in the Northern Hemisphere. For many of us, that means we're focused on baseball. My beloved Boston Red Sox aren't having the best of seasons, so instead I'm just enjoying my time umpiring youth baseball games here in New Hampshire.

The Washington Nationals, on the other hand, seem poised for a postseason run. For the third straight year, we'll be having an AU Night at the Nationals on August 22. It's a great opportunity to come out and enjoy some good family fun with fellow alumni and hopefully see some quality baseball in the process.

Perhaps while you're at the ballpark, you'll have the opportunity to talk with other Eagles who will be volunteering throughout All-American Weekend this fall. Every October we bring alumni back to campus for a variety of events, and the success of the weekend depends on countless volunteers giving time to help prepare, promote, and present these activities. Be sure to thank those who have already signed up -- then think about joining in yourself!

In the meantime, enjoy the summer. I look forward to seeing many of you back on campus soon!
