A team led by Katie Mitchell Franz, alumni relations, in partnership with Joe Kuffner, Trevor Harvey, Anna Horlacher, Adam Guggenheim, Jody Haagenson, Sammy van den Berg, Emily Biggs, Bon Appetit, and the Office of Residence Life has won a National Silver CASE Award for Innovative Alumni Programs for their 2015 Bluff Box Campaign. Through their efforts, incoming freshman students for the 2015-2016 academic year were provided with care packages and notes of welcome from alumni around the country.

Bluff Boxes include half a dozen freshly-baked chocolate chip cookies, UP stickers and pins, and a note from you – an alumnus who was once a new Pilot too. The small care package is $10 and can be ordered online here. Deadline to order is Friday, August 28.

The Office of Alumni Relations has officially launched UP Switchboard, a new community building social network for members of the UP community. Switchboard will give students, alumni, faculty, and staff a place to connect online about everything for career advice to travel tips. It is designed to work like a combination of LinkedIn and Craigslist, where community members can ask for what they need and offer what they have.
