News & Notes

Hello Summer  . . .



Online Membership Up and Running
Did you know your
Alumni Association dates back to 1911 when the first group of alumni formally developed an organization committed to maintaining and cultivating among its members a sense of pride for their alma mater and to support and promote the interests of Montclair State? More than 90 years later, the mission of the Alumni Association hasn’t changed. And thanks to technological advances, joining the MSUAA is electronic and easier than ever.

To learn more about joining the Alumni Association, go to www.msualumcommunity.com and click on "Become an MSUAA Member."

Regional Groups & Chapters Get Active
Washington, D.C.-area
A group of Capitol-area alumni gathered for brunch at the Corcoran Gallery of Art Cafe in Washington, D.C. "We had a delightful time," said organizer Valerie Malhomes '80 '84 MA. Joining her were Kathy Houston '90, Stanley Jakubik '70, '76 M.A. and his wife Jan Thorne Jakubik '70, and Herman Wass '03. "We talked about how the University has changed since our time on campus. We also talked about how we'd like the DC alumni to get together with a purpose. We love the idea of networking and getting to know each other, but we thought it would also be good to have a project to work on every so often. One of the things that came to mind, was working with the University's Government Relations department on topics of interest. We thought that being in Washington, D.C. would afford us the unique opportunity help in any way we can.

The group plans to get together again in December. If you are interested in participating in Washington, D.C. regional group activities, e-mail Maholmes at val_in_dc@hotmail.com or visit the Regional Groups/Chapter page at www.msualumcommunity.com for more information and updates.
