Dear alumni,

We are pleased to welcome you to the fresh new face of eSydney - our regular newsletter for alumni and friends.

This and future issues of eSydney will bring you essential information for your diary: listings of events, updates on University and alumni news, as well as focusing on directing you quickly and easily to your areas of interest.

Incidentally, in response to the recent questionnaire about those areas of interest, these are your choices from 2007 feedback: The Arts (literature, history, music) 76%, Society and Community 70%; Current Affairs, Politics and Media 59%; Science and Technology 39% and Medical Science 35%. These figures suggest a high level of engagement and interest which we will make every effort to satisfy.

Mindful of the pressure of time and emails, we hope you enjoy this new format, and would be delighted to have your feedback, by simply replying to this email.
