Message to Alumni from NKU President

Dear Alumni,

Nita and I thoroughly enjoyed meeting you on July 11, at the alumni gathering at New Riff in Newport. What an incredible northern Kentucky gathering spot! Thanks to those of you who were able to join us, and, to those of you who could not, I hope to meet you soon at a future alumni event.

To wrap up this wonderful first week as the newest member of the Norse family, here is a short video to let you know the things I’ve learned so far from you and our community, and to thank you for your warm welcome.

Sincerely yours,

Ashish K. Vaidya

To my fellow NKU Alumni –

It is a privilege to serve as the next President of the NKU Alumni Board of Directors during such an exciting time. Honoring a 50 year legacy we continue to #NorseUp over 65,000 alumni strong.

Please join me in welcoming Dr. Ashish Vaidya and our first lady Dr. Nita Vaidya!  We are very excited to have him on board and to lead NKU into the next 50 years.

I am excited to collaborate with some of the region’s most visionary minds including our President-Elect Maria Reynolds (’87’, 18) and Vice President Wade Williams (‘97’, 01).  I would also like to thank our Past President Jessica (Martini) Johnston (’99) for her outstanding leadership and I look forward to her continued guidance this coming year.

As members of the #NorseNation I encourage you to share your excellence and stay involved!
