Greetings from Collins LLC



We owe you an alumni newsletter. As usual, lots has been going on at Collins. To get some sense of that you could have a look at the blog I’ve created with my weekly contribution to the Collins Columns. It’s also time for us to start recruitment for next year. To that end I am putting together a brief note to send to IU admits starting in a couple of weeks. I thought it would be nice to include some alumni comments, a couple of sentences on what Collins meant to you (together with your name and year if you’re willing). If that idea appeals, please send your thoughts along. If I get, as I hope, more than a couple of replies, I won’t be able to use them all, at least not in the first mailing.


Fall has arrived in Bloomington (and rain at long last). I hope it’s nice where you are too.
