New Alumni Dashboard
If you haven’t noticed it already, please take a look at the newly created Alumni “dashboard” on the wlu.edu website. Click here to go to the page, which combines information tailored to individual alumni under the Colonnade Connections heading on the right site. Alumni with login information will be able to search the directory, submit and view class notes, see their giving history and register for upcoming events, among other things. If you don’t have your login data, you can email, call or conduct a live chat.
Meanwhile, tabs on the upper left lead to content in three areas: Alumni Events, the newly designed electronic Alumni Magazine, and the Alumni College. There are news feeds for announcements and chapter events, plus links to stay involved in a variety of ways.
At the moment, the feature on the dashboard is a video of Emeritus Professor Sidney Coulling’s wonderful speech to the opening assembly of Reunion Weekend last Thursday. That, in itself, is reason to try out the new site.
If you know any W&L alumni who would be great profile subjects, tell us about them! Nominate them for a web profile.
