Have you visited the USC Upstate Web site lately? If not, here are a few things you’ll want to see:
The University Review is now online. Go to www.uscupstate.edu/UniversityReview/ to view the entire magazine online, print copies of stories, or e-mail your friends a link to a story. Special “Web Exclusive” content for each issue is available online as well as an archive of past issues. And while you’re there, don’t forget to submit your Class Notes!
Speaking of Class Notes, you might have noticed there are no Class Notes in this print edition. Instead, we’ve included 40 alumni profiles in celebration of the University’s 40th Anniversary. To coincide with the launch of the new Web site, we’ve included Class Notes as this issue’s Web Exclusive content. Go to www.uscupstate.edu/UniversityReview/classnotes/ to find out what your Upstate friends have been up to.
The Office of Alumni Affairs has partnered with Harris Connect, a third party technology company, to offer e-mail blasts, alumni newsletters, online communities and online giving. This is a great way to communicate with our graduates and keep them abreast of all University activities. Each alum will create their own password and user name for access to the online community. Any alumni with a valid e-mail address will be invited to join. Go to www.uscupstate.edu/alumni/ for details.
The Wall that Heals, a replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, D.C., made a stop on campus that brought over 17,000 visitors to campus. Go to www.uscupstate.edu/40/wall/ for more information and photos.
Progress on the construction of the Health Education Complex can be viewed via the Web cam and photo archives at www.uscupstate.edu/hec/. A fall completion date is expected on this facility, which will house the Mary Black School of Nursing, School of Education, Bookstore, Enrollment Services and a Wellness/Fitness Center.
The latest issue of the Parent Newsletter is now online and includes important information about fall student housing options and the Global Discovery Program. Go to www.uscupstate.edu/parents/ and click on the Parent Newsletter link.
