Alumni, including faculty and staff, are invited to send information for Alumnotes. Alumnote submissions are edited for length and style and could appear in both the print and online versions of Westwind. Names and year(s) of graduation are checked against our alumni records, however we cannot verify the accuracy of every item in Alumnotes.

In Memory
Family members of deceased alumni, including faculty and staff, are invited to send information about the death of their family member. We print in Westwind the following: name of the deceased, date and location of birth and death, names and hometowns of immediate family survivors (spouse, father, mother, children, and siblings). On occasion we will publish an expanded note with a photo. Priority selections are made for alumni who had an especially strong connection to fellow alumni during or after college. Please send a photo and biographical information if you wish us to consider your family member for an extended note.
