UCAA Newsletter May 2012

Dear alumni,

Welcome to the UCAA Newsletter for May 2012! Lots of exciting things to talk about, so we’ll get right to it:

Sports Day
Remember those great afternoons around the soccer pitch? On Saturday, June 23rd, the UCAA will organize the World Cup Revisited on campus: a championship like back in the day, with not only soccer, but also a number of other sports, maybe even sumo wrestling in those funny fat suits. It will be a great opportunity to meet both your fellow alumni and your old home again, after which we will celebrate with a barbecue. You can sign up with your team of 6 people and a team name by sending an e-mail to info@ucaa.nl. We hope to see you all in June – and yes, you are allowed to dress up.

Post & TalkingPost updates
We’re currently very hard at work putting together the latest edition of your alumni magazine Post (expected to hit your doormats again this June), but we could still very much use your input. If you, or alumni you know, achieved something you’d like to update the rest of the alumni community on (awards, PhDs, babies, weddings, other things you’re awesome at) e-mail them to info@ucaa.nl so we can include them in the Who What Where section. Also, have you uploaded a picture of your young self to Funny Moppets yet? If not, you should, because the best ones just might make it into Post.
To tide you over until the next Post arrives there are lots of exciting things going on over at TalkingPost.org as well. Two new regular columns by Somaye Dehban (‘07) have seen the light of day (with more columns from different authors to come), the good old campus magazine Boomerang has started putting its articles online for your reading pleasure, and, in case you were wondering what some of our alumni are writing on other sites, we’ve put up a new alumni blog page with convenient links to all that good stuff. And, as always, if you’re interested in contributing something or maybe would like to see your blog featured, send us an e-mail at info@talkingpost.org!

UCU Annual Review
UCU has put up its 2011 Annual Review, including the results of the alumni questionnaire that many of you filled out last year. So, if you have ever wondered what percentage of alumni is now working for the government, or what kinds of positions alumni hold, or if you’re interested in UCU’s education budget, or just procrastinating, you can find everything you’re looking for here.

Sincerely yours,
The UCAA Board
