Alumni Association News

Michelle PowerDear Alums,

Earlier this year, we sent you an invitation to participate in the Alumni Attitude Study, and more than 1,600 of you responded. We appreciate the time you took to provide feedback that will help us better serve the needs and interests of our alumni.

Ninety-five percent of survey participants say they rate their decision to attend Chico State as good to excellent. Eighty-five percent of participants say their value and respect for their degree has significant or critical impact on their opinion of Chico State. They hold in high regard the beauty of the campus, the accomplishments of today’s students, the history and tradition of Chico State, and the outreach to the community that Chico State provides.

Survey participants also told us it is important that Chico State help alums in identifying job opportunities. We took that to heart and are thrilled to tell you about our new partnership with the Chico State Career Center in developing a series of webinars designed to help you find that next great job. To learn more about upcoming webinars and view the materials from our most recent webinars, visit Chico State Alumni Career Services. The website also provides information on how you can utilize services from the Chico State Career Center.

My term as president of your Alumni Association ends this January, when I leave you in the very capable hands of Jimmy Reed (’03, ’08). I have enjoyed my time as president and plan to stay connected to the Alumni Association and to Chico State in the years to come.

Celebrating Chico,


Michelle Power (’92), President, CSU, Chico Alumni Association
