Connecting Alums in Cyberspace With UNH Connect

Connecting Alums in Cyberspace With UNH Connect

Tuesday, June 04, 2013

UNH Connect graphicThis just in: UNH has a new online alumni community—UNH Connect­—and we hope you’ll visit soon. It was more than a decade ago, when Wildcat World was launched, that alumni first had the opportunity to connect with one another in cyberspace. Now it’s time to expand the UNH online universe with new opportunities for networking and social interaction at unhconnect.unh.edu. 

Designed to integrate with, not replace, other social networking sites, UNH Connect is more than a great way to stay in touch with friends. “It’s about opening doors to the entire university community and customizing it to meet your needs,” says Bridget Finnegan, director of UNH’s New and Emerging Media team. 

“We’re taking advantage of technology that allows alums to better connect with each other and with their alma mater,” says Steve Donovan, executive director of the Alumni Association. 

Those who log in before Sept. 18 will be entered in a drawing for a Homecoming Weekend package, which includes football tickets plus lodging and breakfast at the Three Chimneys Inn, or one of two iPad Minis. Everybody who logs in, though, will be a winner: Welcome to UNH Connect!
