Dear CC Alumni,

This is definitely a full-circle moment for me. I write this looking out my office window towards Armstrong Hall – a building where I spent most of my academic hours at CC over twenty years ago. A building I never imagined seeing on a daily basis ever again. Yet, here I am.

And I couldn’t be happier.

Stepping back on campus earlier this year, a truth hit me. There’s something magical about this place. An energy that many of us spend the rest of our lives chasing or trying to replicate. But it’s here. Then, now, and always. A feeling of something big about to happen. Potential for creativity, innovation, and change. The people, the place, the energy… it’s hard to put into words. You just feel it.

I’m so excited to be back at CC at this pivotal moment of change and renewal. So much is happening on campus to help students, current and future, go out and better the world. And you, the alumni of CC… I am honored to be a member of this community. I have always been impressed with our collection of doers and change-makers. And since starting as Editor of The Peak, I am reminded daily of how amazing and inspiring you all are. What you do, big or small, makes a difference. You are leading the way in the world and setting a path for future Tiger alumni.

I am extremely proud to bring you The Peak. So many people put so much time and energy into the creation of this space, and I want to say thank you to each and every one of them! They made this for you. This is a place for CC alumni to tell our stories and connect with the greater CC community… and maybe feel a bit of that magic again. I hope you enjoy it!
