Eastern Eastern - Fall/Winter 07 : Page 2

A l u m n i mA t t e r s Eastern AlumniMatters The Campus Beautiful was truly resplendent for Homecoming 2007, October 19-21. “Mission: Maroon” was accomplished in, oh, so many ways! Eastern was awash with sunlit maroon, orange, and yellow as the fall season welcomed alumni back. Students carried out the theme in residence hall decorations and festive parade floats. The Alumni Coliseum parking lot rocked under the big tents with the music, food and fun of Colonel Country Tailgate as fans prepared for EKU’s showdown with Tennessee State. The Colonels chalked up a resounding win over the Tigers and secured their spot at the top of the Ohio Valley Conference rankings. More than 100 Honors Program alumni returned to their alma mater to help celebrate the 20th anniversary of this revered academic program. The inaugural of the new Alumni Career Network reception was well-received both by current students seeking mentors and alumni who graciously shared their time and professional knowledge. Mark your calendars now to blaze a trail home October 25 for Homecoming 2008! Many people think of fall as the winding down of the year, but at your Eastern Kentucky University, the excitement is just getting started. The academic year is in full swing, the campus is alive with the laughter of students, and we’re gearing up for a truly invigorating time in Eastern’s history. As you’ll hear in the pages to follow, EKU is changing, growing and thriving. From new leadership to new facilities and new programs, we’re eager to share all of this positive news with you. What hasn’t changed, however, is the foundation upon which Eastern is built. EKU continues to be a university committed to extending educational opportunity, impacting lives for the better, and flourishing as a caring, nurturing community of learners. Rest assured, traditions that make Eastern...well, Eastern...are still alive and well here: from rubbing the toe of the Daniel Boone statue’s boot before a big test to concerts in the ravine. You are part of this legacy, and as we share our progress with you, we hope you’ll return the favor. We’re eager to hear news of you and your family. Drop us a note or e-mail me at jackie.collier@eku.edu. Better yet, join us on campus April 25-27 for Alumni Weekend. Class reunions, departmental demonstrations and alumni award presentations are just part of what makes this a fun weekend for alumni of all ages! It’s always a treat to catch up with members of the EKU family. The Magazine of Eastern Kentucky University Dr. Doug Whitlock, ’65, ’66 President Joseph D.W.
