We write, print and mail about 18,000 Technically Speaking newsletters twice each year, one in the spring and the other in the fall, to our alumni throughout the nation and a few overseas.
We organize an Alumni Day Event every year at the Tech campus with lunch, a meeting and program in the auditorium, honor the Alumnus of the Year and other special alumni awards, encourage class reunions and end up the day with an All-Alumni Dinner Dance when possible.
Funded by donations, we provide ten to twenty scholarships to Tech students each year with a total value of about $20,000 to $30,000.
From investment income that we receive through an Endowment Fund Drive that we established in early 2000, we award Endowment Fund Grants for students and teachers, after analyzing their requests, for unfunded academic purposes. These Grants total about $10,000 to $25,000 per year since 2004.
We initiated and organized the $35,000 funding for the large electronic sign that stands at the main entrance of the campus.
Alumni have been responsible for several restoration projects on the campus, including the guard house at the Michigan Street entrance.
We have provided the permanent Military Monuments in front of the Arsenal and the entry signage for the Longshore/Potter football field and stadium.
Hundreds of alumni were involved in Tech’s Centennial Celebration events and activities for a full week in 2012. We organized a Tech Alumni Art Show, a parade around the campus, a special box luncheon, a tailgating event prior to the Homecoming Football Game, an evening Dinner/Dance, a special Centennial Museum and created special Centennial Shirts and memorabilia. The Centennial Museum has grown and is now housed in the Media Center.
A new Alumni Plaza was created and dedicated in late 2015 to recognize past and present generations of students who have made a commitment to preserve Tech’s rich history and promote its continued academic achievement.
