Dear COST-Alumni,

It is a pleasure to welcome you to this Special Homecoming Issue of our e-Bulletin "SciTech".
As you are aware, "SciTech" is an online periodical reporting on recent goings in COST, and you will also be able to see all the issues of this e-Bulletin at the COST website at: http://www.savannahstate.edu/scitech/bulletin.htm

You are a very important part of our College’s heritage. We want to maintain a strong and on-going relationship with you. We would love to hear from you and welcome you back to College if you are ever visiting Savannah or its surroundings. We have a lot to tell you about our College – the faculty, the grants they won, their research, our students and their achievements, our programs, collaborative ventures, and growth.

On behalf of COST, I thank you very much for donating funds. We continue to promote quality and excellence, even though we face severe financial challenges due to state budget cuts. I am sure, you appreciate how critical it is that we have increasing concern and growing support of our alumni to help COST provide quality education and effective community service.

We hope that many of you will be able to attend homecoming 2008. You don’t want to miss our homecoming events and to mingle with former classmates, professors and staff. We invite you for renewing friendship, fun and fellowship. Come and experience again the energy and excitement of the SSU campus. Come and visit your alma mater and rekindle fond memories of COST and SSU.

We look forward to hearing from you. We wish you continued success in your professional endeavors.
