  • Retired and have lived in Hawaii for the past 23 years.
  • Retired 
  • Married with 2 children. Territory Manager for Align Technology - the makers of Invisalign.
  • I am working with MassMutual.

As an alumni association, we strive to keep you connected with the SC Delta chapter long after graduation. What could we do to encourage you to become more active in the association? Perhaps by hosting more fun events? Any other advice?

  • Finally, have diversity in membership. It's 2019!
  • Host many more events and get new people involved I think younger past alumni ages 30-40 would be much more successful in recruiting much more alumni involvement and relate much more to the current members.
  • Communication is the key I look forward to being more active with other members
  • For me personally, I would like to see an effort made to be more inclusive. SAE got a black eye over some past student behavior. 
  • More events like golf tournaments
  • Offer volunteer opportunities.
  • Organize occasional SC Delta alumni events in the DC/Northern Va/Maryland area, or collaborate with such events for all Province Omicron alums in the area.

Thank you for sharing your memories and your opinions. Your words mean something to us, brothers. We have heard you and will act on your advice.
