Dear Bear, 

Welcome to UPIKENEWS, the official newsletter of the University of Pikeville Alumni Association.
The University of Pikeville Alumni Association is excited to announce the 2013-2014 AlumNites calendar! We know life can be busy and that it is difficult to make it back to Pikeville as often as you would like, so we are coming to you. With the help of our new team of alumni volunteers, the Alumni Association has organized a wide variety of fun activities and events that will appeal to every generation.
In addition to registering online, you can also register and get more information regarding any of the events by contacting the Office of Alumni Relations. Interested in joining our team of alumni volunteers and hosting an AlumNite in your area? Contact the Office of Alumni Relations.

On behalf of the Alumni Association and the University of Pikeville community, Go Bears!

Coleman College of Business
Named in Honor of Burlin Coleman 
In a setting where education, opportunity and innovation will come together, the University of Pikeville introduced the Burlin Coleman College of Business, named for a business leader who spent more than 50 years developing the banking industry in Eastern Kentucky. As Coleman and University of Pikeville Board Chairman Terry Dotson unveiled the name during a press conference July 8, Dr. James Hurley, UPIKE's new president, announced Coleman's gift of $1 million to the College of Business.
