Chico State’s 125th anniversary is a great occasion to celebrate the University’s legacy and achievements. It has reminded me of how proud I am to be a second-generation Chico alum and how honored I am to serve as president of the Alumni Association. I’d like to share a few of our association goals as well as some of the exciting projects planned to commemorate the 125th anniversary.
The board wants to foster an active Alumni Association through strong chapters, advocate for Chico State and the CSU system, and be the point of contact for all alumni. Our goal is to create a lifelong connection to Chico State. We will make this happen through alumni and student engagement as well as growing membership in the Alumni Association. We look to each of you to assist us in making a difference for our campus. To stay current on ways you can get involved, please visit our Alumni Association website at www.csuchico.edu/alumni.
The 125th anniversary committee has established some exciting projects for alumni and the community to participate in. One that I am especially passionate about is the My Service Counts campaign (see below). A scoreboard on the website shows the total hours logged by the campus community as well as by parents and alumni. Check out the websitewww.myservicecounts.com to log on and track your service hours online. To see other key dates, visit www.csuchico.edu/125.
There are many incredible events, such as Family Weekend and the 1880s Party, the Veterans Day Recognition event, and the third annual Chico Experience Week, that you can attend to get involved with the 125th anniversary.
I am pleased to have this opportunity to update you on Alumni Association Board priorities and to encourage you to stay connected to the Chico Experience.
Michelle Power (’92), President, CSU, Chico Alumni Association

A significant part of The Chico Experience is a proud and long-standing tradition of community service. Through organizations such as CAVE and CLIC, the Greek system, and athletics, our students, faculty, and staff have positively impacted the lives of countless people throughout our community and region. As part of Chico State’s 125th anniversary celebration, My Service Counts challenges the campus community (students, faculty, and staff) to perform 125,000 hours of service in 2012.
In addition, the University is asking parents of current students and Chico State alumni to match those efforts with an additional 125,000 hours of service this year. To learn more about the My Service Counts program and to log your hours, visit www.myservicecounts.com.
