Staying in touch is so important. We are working with Harris Connect—the company that has provided our online services since 2000—to compile a Universitywide print directory of all alumni. It will be our first since 2001. You’ll want to make sure your information is up to date. If Harris Connect has not contacted you yet to verify your information, it will soon.

Alumni find all sorts of ways to stay in touch and keep the Pitt spirit strong. Melanie and Anil Mehta, featured on page 51, gather with other Pitt alumni in Florida whenever they can, and they also traveled to El Paso in December to join us at the Sun Bowl. Dennis Ranalli, in our School of Dental Medicine, has enduring ties with Pitt, as you’ll read about here. He, too, enjoys traveling the world with other Pitt alumni. Trips with the association offer a great way to get to know others and learn about far-flung places. The February trip to Tanzania was no exception. To see photos, turn the page and also go to and follow the links to About Us and Photo Galleries.

Another way to stay in touch is to attend a Pitt Club game watch.  Lots of clubs and representatives hosted game watches during the NCAA Tournament. Here’s to both the men’s and the women’s teams for their great performances this year. Check our Web site for a club or rep near you. If you don’t find one, consider becoming a rep yourself. Call Alyson Kavalukas at 1-800-ALU-PITT to learn more.

One of the best ways to stay in touch is to join the Pitt Alumni Association.  You can do that on our Web site, as well. Association members get discounts and extra benefits. It’s a great time to join us.

Hail to Pitt!
