Hello Alumni & Friends

It has been a whirlwind few months for me as I settle in to my new role as Director of Alumni Relations at Siena Heights University. I have been with the University for over six years, spending my first five in Advancement and the last year and a half in campus events. I have been counting my blessings since being selected to this role and know I have big shoes to fill.

I consider myself to be a lifelong learner and recently (2015) walked across the commencement stage with my husband of 25 years as we graduated together from Siena with our master’s degrees in Organizational Leadership. Jim has been coaching football here at SHU since it was added in 2011. We have three children, two of whom are current students here at Siena, so we have a lot of #SaintsPride.

Each day I feel fortunate to speak with alums who reach out to my new office.  Sometimes it is just to change their address in the database. Sometimes it is to inquire about a former classmate they hope to contact. Sometimes it is to find out more about the upcoming alumni trip to Italy in 2019. Whatever the call is for, I am happy to pick up and listen.  Listening to your stories is probably the best part of my job.  I love to hear what Siena
means to you. I know it means a lot to me as well.

So please reach out and give me a call. ‘Like’ a post on our Siena Heights University Alumni Facebook page (request to join us if you are not a member). Send me an email telling me your Siena Story. I really want to hear about the impact Siena had and continues to have in your life. That is what alumni relations is all about. That is what Siena Heights continues to be all about—impacting our students’ lives and helping them to live the mission.

I look forward to talking to YOU, so be sure to connect!

Go Saints!

Congratulations on your new role Kate! I love reading about Siena Alumni and current student news in Reflections, on the app and fb. I wish I could get back to Adrian to visit campus more often but as the only Alum living in Australia, that I know of, it is difficult. I was back in 2014 for my 15 yr and loved it. The campus has changed so much. I am patiently waiting to see the completion of the upgraded PAC where I basically lived for my 4 years.

The best of luck! Cannot wait to read more about my fellow alums!
