Telling our stories, electronically

Jorge E. Ancona

Welcome to the inaugural issue of ZotZine, the new electronic magazine from University Communications and the UCI Alumni Association. ZotZine, which replaces Anteater eNews, will share with you interactive feature stories about people, upcoming events and items of interest to our growing Anteater family.

We look forward to continuing to bring UCI’s stories to your inbox. We hope you enjoy meeting these and other Anteaters as much as we do!

Best from Irvine,

Travel the globe with your fellow alumni


As travel costs skyrocket in today’s economy, many tourists search for lower-priced alternatives. For UCI alumni, the quest to find a better option is just a click away.

In partnership with AHI Travel, the UCI Alumni Association offers several travel programs throughout the year to members. Complete with planned tours and innovative itineraries, alumni travelers can visit all parts of the globe at highly competitive prices. UCIAA and AHI now feature exotic trips to Israel, Alaska, Amalfi, Salzburg and Vienna.

As a UCIAA member, you get first-class accommodations in the heart of each city, and the highest level of customer service. In addition, you can go on city tours led by local experts or explore on your own. No matter where you visit, you can customize your vacation.

For travelers with hectic schedules, AHI offers an “any-reason cancellation policy” with purchase of travelers’ insurance. Just let the company know 48 hours before your departure that you need to cancel − no penalties, no hassles.

For more information regarding travel opportunities through your alumni association, visit UCIAA’s exclusive travel Web site.
