Dear Alumni,

UIC's spring semester is wrapping up and it's been great to meet so many alumni at our meetings and events. As you read through our Alumni Association e-newsletter, you'll see many more gatherings ahead. I hope you’ll join us!

Speaking of spring, commencement season is here and we're thrilled to welcome almost 6,000 new alumni to our 265,000-member alumni family.  Please help us congratulate and welcome these new UIC alumni!
