Postcards with a Purpose

For the seventh year in a row, alumni have enthusiastically welcomed accepted students through our From One Tiger to Another program, a project run in partnership between the offices of Alumni Relations and Admissions. In 2024, 275 alumni wrote more than 2,000 postcards to potential Tigers around the country — congratulating students on their acceptance, offering words of encouragement and sharing their own TU experiences. Often alumni got creative, adding stickers, artwork and other special touches to make the postcards truly personalized. The popularity of the program has grown exponentially since 2020, and though there are new participants each year, the vast majority of volunteers have participated multiple times. A few alumni, including Amanda Critelli ’09, Stephanie LaMonica ’05 and Melissa Luckman ’05, have taken part an astonishing seven years in a row. We are grateful to all the Tigers who have generously contributed to this program over the years. 

Getting to Know TU’s 15th President

TU President Ginsberg and alumni

Alumni have had several opportunities to meet President Mark R. Ginsberg at a number of special welcome events throughout the winter and spring. The receptions have taken place across seven Maryland counties, as well as in Baltimore City and Washington, D.C. The events have not only offered a unique chance for Tigers to get to know TU’s new president and learn about his vision for the university’s future but also allowed alumni to ask questions and offer feedback while the president continues his listening tour.
