'Tis the season to run
We extend our congratulations to two former Bearcat cross country and track team members for finishing the Boston Marathon. Chris Raulli '10, MBA '11 (left) finished the race in two hours and 38 minutes and sports his finsher's medal in the photo.
Chris Gaube '11 (right) ran the 26.2 mile distance in two hours and 54 minutes.
To celebrate the arrival of spring (and, some days, we thought it would never get here), the Alumni Association wanted to encourage people to walk or run any distance. During the month of April, we offered a Swing into Spring Fitness Challenge on our Facebook page. The 11 alumni who ran or walked a total of 50-99 miles during the month of April got a Binghamton University Alumni window decal, while the 20 who logged 100 miles or more got a decal and an alumni lapel pin. Great job, everyone!
B-CONNECTED with other graduates! B-connected is a secure virtual community only for Binghamton University alumni. Update your personal profile, search for alumni, and submit and read Class Notes.
NEW SEASON, NEW JOB? To help you move ahead in your career, the Alumni Association offers two LinkedIn groups. Make new connections in our Professional Network group and search for jobs posted by alumni in our Job Forum group (and share postings if you have them).
SHARE YOUR EXPERTISE WITH US! The Alumni Relations office is asked to recommend alumni who are expert speakers. If you are well-versed, because of your education and professional experience, in subjects including national security, politics, technology, career networking, environmental studies or etiquette, please contact Melinda Holicky, associate director for volunteer engagement. Include your name, class year, and a brief description of your experience and expertise. Supporting material could include a c.v. or link to your website.
The Alumni Association and Uncommon Goods (founded by David Bolotsky '85) offer the opportunity to purchase banks made from mailboxes salvaged from Newing Dining Hall. This can be a great keepsake of your time as a student at Binghamton. Banks also make great gifts! Purchase a bank today.
