Happy returns

The Quad gave Maureen Turner Vandiver '61 a sense of place. And now she, like many others, has given back to keep that sense alive for others. Read more about the house mother she and Mary Lib Manning Slate honored and how you can honor someone as well.

The newly refurbished Quad buildings will hold memories for generations of students to come.

All together now

Seeing good friends, visiting old haunts, catching a game, enjoying live music — what's not to like? Homecoming is just around the corner. Make plans to be there and tour the remodeled Quad on Nov. 3, among lots of other activities. See the schedule of events for the week of Oct. 29-Nov. 4.

Talking encouraged at library events

University Libraries has a slate of thought-provoking events coming up — from a documentary on water contamination to a celebration of Virginia Dare. Read more about these events and others.

For women only

Women leave thousands and thousands of dollars on the bargaining table each year. It's true! Why do we not compete well with men for the best jobs and the best salaries? According to Linda Babcock and Sara Laschever, women don't ask! Read more from Kathleen Martinek, former UNCG alumni career counselor.

Alumni Association Announcements & Upcoming Events

Lots going on this month! For starters, regional Alumni Clubs are kicking off. Clubs in D.C. and Atlanta will meet Oct. 17 and Oct. 23, respectively.

Brady and Dr. Jerry Pubantz, dean of the Lloyd International Honors College. On Oct. 24, the Alumni Association will host a meet and mingle reception for Guilford County Commissioner candidates. And don't forget that little thing called Homecoming Nov. 3. Learn about these events and more.
