    A Message from Alumni Relations

    Happy New Year 2014!
    We are looking forward to the new year and have a list of "resolutions" to help us continue to engage alumni and friends as we embark on our historic $300 million dollar campaign: Where the Future Comes First, the Campaign for Teachers College. One of our five goals during the campaign is to Communicate with More Alumni than ever before - help us achieve this goal by updating your information, sharing your news with us (so we can brag about you to the TC Community!) and by forwarding along this newsletter to your TC Network. We want to stay connected, and we can't do that unless you're an active participant! We look forward to hearing from you!
