Events calendar taking shape...

We've got our Toys for Tots/Holiday Ships event set for Dec. 18Go to our Events page for details. 

The discounted ticket sale for our night at the Oregon Symphony on Feb. 7 has begun. Come  hear the sonic spectacular that is Carmina Burana. Find details here

And basketball watch parties will soon be scheduled, including one for the Duke game on Feb. 14.

Are you a Who[vian]?

Fans of the British TV show Doctor Who can take their passion for the title character even further, thanks to Newhouse School professor Anthony Rotolo (above, right). He's offering a free, online class in January, Doctor Who in the Digital Age. An article about Rotolo and his class ran in the Washington Post and Vancouver Columbian in early November.

Sound like fun? You can learn more about Prof. Rotolo's course and register for it here.

Thanks for coming ... and bleeding!

Thanks to blood donors like Rob Kweit ('67) we collected two dozen units at What Color Do YOU Bleed?III on Nov.1.

Inside Macadam's that day, we joined up with a few NC State alums in the back room to watch the Orange take on the Wolfpack.

Check out how the day went here.  

A carving we did go

Several members of the Stumptown Orange brought their pumpkins, carving tools and imaginations to Migration Brewing on Oct. 27. They joined other ACC alumni for an evening of Jack O'Lantern-ing. Thanks to our own Erika Kirkland (second from left) who organized the event!

Good luck, John and Ellen!

Our second most ... uh, experienced Stumptowner (in terms of graduation year) has left us -- but only for the other side of the state. John Nesbitt ('58, Forestry) and his wife, Ellen, moved earlier in the fall to Wallowa County to be nearer to their daughter. We're going to miss Ellen and Stumpy John. Best of luck in your new "Enterprise," sir!

Congratulate our new CO-presidents!

Michael Cook ('82) and Mary Dickinson Jensen ('13) were elected our  club co-presidents at our annual meeting on June 11.
