Great Response to GT GOLD
Thanks to you all for making the first edition of GT GOLD a huge success last month. We had an amazing response to this first-ever young alumni newsletter, with dozens of story submissions and volunteer applications and hundreds of new friends on our Facebook page. There's more to come, and we look forward to continuing to strengthen the young alumni network.

Also, applications are now available for next year's Young Alumni Council.

Our ongoing initiatives include improving career networking and mentorship, helping the Alumni Association and clubs develop more targeted programming, and partnering with SAA to ease the graduate transition.
