It’s a new world, and much of that world is online. As a result, the Office of Alumni Affairs has amped up its presence on the web, including an active Facebook page which we regularly update with news about YU alumni events, announcements of upcoming programs, contests with the chance to win YU swag, and videos and photos, including the popular photo feature “Toddler Tuesdays.” For many of our alumni, especially those living abroad, the YU Alumni Facebook page is an important touchstone. “As a YU alumnus living in Israel, YU’s Facebook page is my lifeline to all things YU,” said Elie Klein ’03SB. “Whether you live 6,000 miles away or in the same zip code, it’s always nice to feel connected to the rest of the YU family.”
Aside from connecting to a valuable resource for YU news, why else should you follow the YU Alumni Facebook page? Simple: you might just win an iPad. With the mere click of the ‘Like’ button on the facebook.com/YUAlumni page, you are officially entered into our newest contest, which will randomly select a person from among our followers, both new and old, to win the incredibly popular Apple iPad (prize value is $600).
