Join us for Homecoming 2010
We're already working on some events for Homecoming 2010 that you won't want to miss. Make plans now to join us on campus Friday-Sunday, Oct. 8-10. And, reach out to classmates and encourage them to attend Homecoming.
Seeking nominations for alumni board
If you know of someone who should be named to the Alumni Association's Board of Directors, we want to hear from you. Nominate a fellow Binghamton University graduate - or yourself - for the association's Board of Directors. We will consider all nominations received by Dec. 31, 2009 for a two-year term of service that will begin on July 1, 2010.
Weigh in on lifelong learning programs
The Alumni Association and Continuing Education and Outreach office want to develop ongoing and engaging lifelong learning programs. Our goal is to offer you and other alumni both professional and personal learning opportunities.
Time running out to catch Full-Spectrum exhibit
Full-Spectrum: Natural Fibers, Quilts & the Textile Arts is on display at the University's Art Museum (located in the Fine Arts Building on campus) until Saturday, Dec. 5. The showing - which has some of America's most stunning quilts and allows you to hear from the creators themselves - draws together three exhibits.
Update from Think Binghamton
Binghamton University's advocacy team recently launched its updated Think Binghamton website. The new site has been redesigned to provide simpler, more user-friendly navigation and improved graphics, focusing on a theme that draws attention to our existing strengths.
Statement on basketball investigation
As you might have noticed in the media lately, there has been some discussion of recent events involving the men’s basketball program and the University is taking the issue very seriously. President Lois B. DeFleur has made significant changes to the leadership of the athletics program and the men’s basketball program.
Deadline approaching for tax-free gifts from IRAs
Congress has re-authorized legislation that allows donors to make charitable gifts from their IRA accounts during tax year 2009 without incurring income tax on the withdrawal. If you are age 70½ or older and are required to take minimum withdrawals and you do not need them for personal use, this may be a great way to make a gift to one or more qualified charities. While you cannot claim a charitable deduction for IRA gifts, you will not pay income tax on the amount. Action must be taken by Dec. 31, 2009.
