It’s a new year and for many of us a new day! We continue to look for new ways to keep you engaged. Please bookmark our virtual engagement resources page, as we add new virtual alumni events each month (including college-specific webinars!).

You may remember filling out an online survey about how you would like to stay engaged with the alumni office. It may not seem like that long ago, but it was pre-COVID, and focused on many in-person events. Our second alumni survey received great responses about your virtual event preferences. Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey. We are listening! There were lots of suggestions on virtual topics, as well as ideas for colleges and classes.

Here is a brief summary of your preferences:

  • Best day to gather virtually – Friday!
  • Best time to gather virtually – responses split between noon and 6 p.m.
  • Topics you’d like us to share:
    • 70% would like college-specific updates.
    • 50% would like to continue to receive COVID-19 updates.
    • Research updates.
    • University–wide updates.
    • Networking opportunities.
  • 55% would like monthly Zooms or webinars.

We look forward to seeing many of you at upcoming virtual events. For those who attend, be on the lookout for a special gift from your alumni office.

And finally, are you looking for a way to show your MUSC spirit? The next time that you update your SC license plate, be sure to ask for the MUSC version. Your alumni office appreciates this support and it lets fellow alumni know you are proud of your alma mater.

We appreciate our alumni and wish you a wonderful and happy new year.
