Welcome to our new website
Dear fellow alumni,
On behalf of the UChicago Alumni Club of Connecticut, welcome to the University of Chicago Community Online (UCCO).
For several years the Alumni Club of Connecticut has used e-mail, Facebook, LinkedIn and postcards as ways of communicating with our members. We are now launching our club’s very own website, www.uchicagoCT.org. While these original modes of communication will remain intact, this new platform will offer additional features for our alumni and allow members to integrate various functions, such as finding fellow alumni who now live and work in your area via the community directory, registering for upcoming events and viewing photos from previous ones in Connecticut, and reading University news.
The site is interactive and has numerous ways you can use it to share information and connect with fellow members of your community. The site also houses career resources and links to the Volunteer Network where you will be able to find information regarding volunteer opportunities.
I also wanted to take this opportunity to inform you of some leadership changes within the alumni club. It has been my honor to serve in the capacity of president for the past two years and I am pleased with the growth of the organization during this time. As of July 1st, 2014, I will be stepping down from the position and a newly created board of directors will be leading the organization forward as it continues to flourish. Read my letter to alumni here.
If you have questions or would like to get involved, visit our “Contact Us” page and reach out to the appropriate alumnus or staff member.
With this new resource and your involvement and support, we look forward to continuing to strengthen the UChicago community in Connecticut.
