Alumni directory slated for 2003

Nov. 6, 2002

KALAMAZOO -- The WMU Alumni Association will publish an alumni directory in 2003 to commemorate the University's centennial and help alumni rekindle memories of their alma mater as well as reconnect with former classmates.

The directory will feature listings of alumni grouped by graduation date, geographical area and profession. It also will include a color editorial section filled with WMU history and facts, adding to its value as a reference work and centennial keepsake.

Profiles of many alumni already have been sent to the directory's publisher, the Bernard C. Harris Publishing Co. Inc., from existing WMU files and questionnaires filled out by graduates.

Alumni are responsible for updating their profiles with current information and verifying the accuracy of questionnaire information. For those who do not update or verify their information, the directory will include the profiles WMU currently has on file. To update or verify information or to purchase the directory, alumni may call the Harris Publishing Co. toll free at (888) 749-0746.

All alumni will be listed in the directory, except those who specifically ask to be omitted. Alumni who do not wish to be included in the directory should contact the Alumni Association at (269) 387-8777 or <alumni@wmich.edu>.

Only WMU alumni will be able to purchase the directory, which is scheduled to be shipped in June 2003 and will be available on CD and as a hardcover or softcover book. Alumni do not need to purchase the directory in order to have their listings included.
