THERE IS A NEW, FREE
MONTHLY INFORMATION SERVICE FOR ALUMNI. @UVic
is an e-mail newsletter, produced by UVic Alumni
Services, that provides links to the latest
on-line campus news, event listings, research
features and information about alumni benefits
The newsletter began publication
in the spring and arrives in your inbox as a
brief e-mail message containing headlines linked
to assorted university Web pages. Recent editions
have directed readers to stories about the 2004
Legacy Award winners, UVic’s leadership
in global studies, and offerings from the Alumni
and Friends travel program.
“E-mail technology provides
a great opportunity to communicate more frequently
without a lot of expense,” says Don Jones,
Director of Alumni Services. “Our objective
is to build strong ties with alumni who are scattered
around the world. @UVic is the quickest, most
effective way to inform people of events and
activities that may interest them.”
About 14,000 UVic alumni already
receive @UVic each month. To join the distribution
list, send an e-mail request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
E-mail addresses are only used for the newsletter
and to inform subscribers of special events and
services for UVic alumni.
Back issues of @UVic are archived
on the alumni Web site (alumni.uvic.ca/newsletters/index.html).
