Director’s Corner

Fall 2016 is the start of new traditions for Stanislaus State students and alumni. Freshman Convocation, on Aug. 22, was a time for incoming freshman to celebrate their status as Stan State students. The campus community, including Alumni Advisory Council Chair Adrian Harrell, welcomed the next cohort of more than 1,400 Warriors at the celebration!

On the second Wednesday of each month you can join fellow Stan State alumni at a designated location to expand your professional network or to socialize and reconnect. I hope to see you on Sept. 14 at 5:30 p.m. at Dust Bowl Brewing’s downtown tap room. If you would like to start a Warrior Wednesday in your area, contact me at

On October 1, Stan State alumni and friends will charter a bus, filled with refreshments and fun Giants trivia, to watch the Giants battle the Dodgers at AT&T Park. There is still time to get your tickets – you do not want to miss this trip!

Go Warriors!
