Las Vegas Chapter Spotlight


Las Vegas Alumni Chapter keeps new events coming

They say what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, but what’s happening with the Las Vegas Alumni Chapter is just too good to keep in. In fact, they don’t mind a bit if word gets around.

Launched in spring of 2014, the Las Vegas Chapter has gotten a running start on being a local resource for alumni networking, career development opportunities and simply having fun—and they show no signs of slowing down. The chapter, now with more than 200 members, has already held several events, including a meet and greet in April, Graduate Appreciation Night in June and the local Homecoming 2014 event on August 15, with plenty more in the pipeline.  

Says Chapter Administrator Jennifer Bingen, “New chapters are always excited to get going, but we are meeting two to three times a month to keep planning new events. We keep moving forward and planning our events for every quarter.”

Events on the horizon

In October, the chapter will host a family picnic, featuring face painting and activities for kids and adults. The group is reaching out to local high school students to volunteer time for the event as part of the students’ senior charity projects.

In late November and early December, the chapter will host a charity event in support of the nonprofit organizations Toys for Tots and Opportunity Village. And the group is already looking ahead to 2015, with a UOPX faculty and staff appreciation event planned in February.
