On the Road Again
The CSU Alumni Association is on the road again, reconnecting with graduates near and far.
In September, we visited Detroit, bringing with us President Harlan M. Sands on his first official alumni visit. It’s been a number of years since we were in the Motor City and the enthusiastic response was most gratifying.
Special thanks to alumnus James Deiotte, BBA ’80 and MBA ’84, and his wife Debbie for hosting the reception at the Detroit Athletic Club.
Next up, in November, were Dallas and Houston. Texan alums turned out in large numbers to meet President Sands on his first official visit to the Lone Star state. Once again, engaged Vikings hosted the receptions at the Dallas Country Club and Houstonian Hotel. Thank you, Terry and Ron Unkefer, BBA ’66, and Christine and Jim Mastandrea, BBA ’70.
On January 10, we’ll head south to Charlotte, N.C. If you live or “snow bird” in the area, join us at the Charlotte City Club.
Then we’re off to Naples, Fla. for our always popular CSU2U. This alumni college event, on February 2, showcases faculty members sharing their expertise on a variety of interesting topics. It’s always a sell-out!
In March, we’ll make our annual trip to Arizona to catch spring fever and the Indians in spring training. We’re also planning visits to Columbus, Washington, D.C. and Chicago in the spring.

Do you love to read? Consider joining the CSU Alumni Book Club — a virtual book club with discussion groups organized online through the group’s website.
Every two months, the book club offers alumni two titles — one with a professional development focus and the other with an emphasis on lifelong learning. Each period, book club members connect through a private online forum where they discuss the current book and network with each other. This fall, members have been reading Talent is Overrated by Geoff Calvin and Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson.
Joining the book club is free for alumni — just get a copy of the book to enjoy. To sign up and learn more, visit www.pbc.guru/csuohio. Sign up today! >>
