Upcoming EVENTS for SCSU alumni

SCSU Alumni Networks are being established in Connecticut (CT wine tasting tour) and throughout the United States in areas where we have large concentrations of alumni.  These networks are being designed to help alumni make connections, both socially and professionally and stay connected with Southern.  We will need your help in administering them.  Each network will have a chairperson and a core group of volunteers to plan events as well as set and accomplish goals of the group.  If you would like to help, please contact Michelle Johnston via email or phone at 203-392-6500.  See below for a list of network events currently being planned.

Your Retirement Lifestylejeff

Wednesday, October 19, 2016
6:00 p.m.
Adanti Student Center
Alumni Room 312

Are you age 50 - 70 and planning to retire?  Jeffrey Webber, MS '91 has written six books on how to retire successfully on subjects such as the new professionals' guide to retiring, volunteering, hobbies, keeping fit and active, frugality, RVing and technology.

Self-reinvention is a major payoff during this time in our lives. The process can help us realize a deeper truth about ourselves leading to self-discovery.

One of the best ways you can accomplish this is through hobbies. Hobbies can create an invigorated sense of purpose during your retirement years. And, you will have fun too! These activities can certainly keep you active physically, socially, and mentally.

This session will present you with a variety of suggestions for hobbies during retirement based on Jeffrey Webber's latest book entitled "Hobbies & Your Retirement Lifestyle: A Path to Self-Discovery".

There is no charge for the seminar, but please email Charlie Davison with your reservation.
