What fiscal year did this effort occur?2018

This was our fall appeal mailing to alumni. These are actual photos from our yearbooks over the years. Our hope was that you might be able to find yourself or a friend on the postcard.

What makes this unique

Use of the actual yearbook photos is not something we have done before. We regularly use photos of beloved faculty or iconic images of campus, but we have not used actual alumni photos in this volume.

Primary Goal

To increase participation.


This mailing went out only a few weeks ago and will remain our theme throughout the year.
