Rice, M.D., during the Jan. 18 Town Hall meeting. “We intend to celebrate our history and accomplishments in big ways and small over the year.” The main event will be held Sept. 20-22, and will include the annual USU-HJF Symposium on Thursday, Sept. 20 at the Rockville Hilton. On Friday, Sept. 21, USU will celebrate its anniversary with special guests, lectures, showings of “Fighting for Life,” along with a host of other activities, ending with a 40th Anniversary reception and dinner in the evening. The USU Alumni Association will plan and host Alumni Weekend events on Saturday, Sept. 22. Two 40th Anniversary logos were created by USU’s Graphics Division staff to mark the celebration. Logos should be used on websites, powerpoint presentations, posters and other USU materials throughout 2012, and are available for download at www.usuhs.mil/vpe/branding.html.
