Class notes traditionally include job changes, promotions, weddings, babies, interesting trips, or any other updates alumni would like to share with the Fuqua community. Learn how to submit written class notes and how to upload photographs.
Please edit the text you submit using the following guidelines:
1. Put alumni names in bold type. Do not put partners in bold type unless the partner is also an alumnus/alumna. Example:
2. Alphabatize notes based on the alumni's last name.
3. Include Fuqua program and class year if an alumnus/alumna is mentioned, but is not a member of your class. Example:
4. List any woman's maiden name in parentheses if she has changed to her married name since she was a student. Example:
Pictures that illustrate alumni news are always welcome. Encourage classmates to send photos of family, friends, parties, Fuqua gatherings, etc. Photo submission guidelines:
Class notes should be submitted as one Microsoft Word document with the document name "[CLASS YEAR] [PROGRAM] [ISSUE] Class Notes," e.g., "Daytime 2003 Fall 2013 Class Notes." The document should include a header indicating the program, class year, and issue.
Photos should be indicated in the note for which they are relevant. Review the sample tab for an example.
