Greetings, fellow alumni!

Aaron Skaggs

This will be my last letter to you as president of the Chico State Alumni Association, with my term concluding in January 2018. 

It has been an honor and a privilege to serve in this capacity working with our dedicated Board of Directors and staff, President Hutchinson and her administration, and our alumni, who are constantly giving back to the University and promoting the Chico Experience.

Over the last two years, we have accomplished many goals and tasks that we set as an association. This included the creation of traditions that will connect incoming students to the campus and continue to connect them for a lifetime. In cooperation with the Associated Students, Athletics, and the administration, we have commissioned the design and installation of a Wildcat statue that will serve as a point of pride and a rallying point for students, alumni, and the surrounding community. Keep an eye out for the installation and dedication of the statue in the spring of 2018. 

Additionally, we have dedicated ourselves to the expansion of the Chico State alumni network and continued engagement with the current student population. Over the
last two years, we have expanded the association’s reach to include alumni networks in Portland, Oregon, and San Diego. For more information about these networks and the four previously existing networks, please visit the Alumni Association website to see how you can get involved. For students, we co-sponsor Adulting 101 workshops that aim to help students on their journey to independence by covering topics such as money management, healthy eating, and car smarts. Also, we continue to participate at events such as Senior Send-Off, and we organize and sponsor the “Big C” photo every August for incoming students.

Most important of all—because it allowed us to do everything else previously stated—we have successfully operated as an all-inclusive organization for more than two years and have been able to sustain ourselves without dues. This was no easy feat, but it allowed us to spend more time connecting with you, our alumni. That is what this association is all about, and I am proud of what we have accomplished together.

Celebrating 125 years of alumni connections!

Go Wildcats! 

—Aaron Skaggs (’10), President Chico State Alumni Association
