Reaching out to Seattle alumni
PORTLAND STATE staff and administrators, including President Wim Wiewel, were in the Emerald City in February for a brunch reception with alumni at the World Trade Center.
The PSU Alumni Association has targeted Seattle as the first of 25 areas with large alumni populations for its new alumni clubs. Seattle-area alumni Matthew Bear ’03, Jeffrey Eulberg ’04, Mary Sykora ’04, MA ’09, and Joseph Wiser ’05, are helping the University form a Seattle club for the approximately 3,000 alumni living in the area.
University representatives will be back in Seattle Sept. 15 to host a tailgate party before the PSU Viking football team plays the Washington Huskies at Seattle’s CenturyLink Field. The party will be at Pyramid Alehouse, 1201 First Avenue South.

Building a new online community
From Portland to anywhere in the world, PSU alumni should be able to connect with each other and the University online. Portland State will make these links possible in the next year with a new online program that allows secure instant communication. Stay tuned.
