Why I Wear Green
It is a privilege and an honor to visit with our alumni and hear their stories. They go on to do great things, yet they stay true to their humble UND values. Every single conversation with an alumnus inspires me.
Alyssa is a leader on the marketing & communications team. Her specialties are strategic messaging and project management. Once given the nickname “Lois Lane,” Alyssa has a knack for sniffing out a good story. As editor of the UND Alumni Magazine, Alyssa coordinates the creation, production, and delivery of alumni stories.
In the summer, Alyssa's tiny garden keeps her busy during the week and weekends are spent at the lake. Alyssa’s favorite season is football season, and her family never misses a Fighting Hawks home game.
