Letter to Alumni Community

Dear Sonoma State University Alumni Community,  

Tiffany O'Neil
Tiffany O'Neil

I’m thrilled to reconnect with you through the pages of “Insights.” Let me express my sincere gratitude for your continued support and engagement with your alma mater. Your contributions, whether through mentorships, philanthropy, or simply staying connected with fellow alumni, are instrumental in shaping the future of our university community.  

Within these pages, you’ll find updates on upcoming events, volunteer opportunities, and ways to stay connected with your fellow alumni. Whether you’re looking to reconnect with old friends, expand your professional network, or give back to your alma mater, there are many ways for you to engage. 

We invite you to share your own stories, updates, and achievements with us for future editions of the magazine or through digital media. Your experiences and insights are invaluable not only to our alumni community but also to current students who look to you for inspiration and guidance.

Please stay connected, engaged, and proud of the impact you have made and continue to make as alumni of Sonoma State University. If you have any questions, suggestions, or would like to get involved, please do not hesitate to reach out.  

I look forward to hearing from you and working together to shape the future of our alumni community.
