Alumi and Friends Listserv
Dear Alumni and Friends,
Join a listserv set up just for our alumni, students and friends! If you are not aware, a listserv allows all members of a list to communicate with one another instantly.
The purpose of the CJA-ALUMS listserv is to provide an information forum for alumni, students and friends of the Department of Criminal Justice at Sonoma State University. (We've kept the name CJA-ALUMS since the name change of our department is very recent.) The list can be used to discuss, post questions about or comment on justice related issues, to find out about current events, to provide a means of keeping in touch with one another, to learn about findings of research and projects underway by list members, and many others.
How to Subscribe to the CJA-ALUMS

If all goes well you will receive a mail from the listserv welcoming you to the list. That message will repeat some of what you find on this page as well as additional information.
Sending messages to the list
To send a message to the ENTIRE list of subscribers address it to
When your message arrives at this address it is reproduced and sent to everyone who is a member of the list. Note also that if you reply to a message sent by the listserv, the reply is reproduced and distributed to the list. Sometimes you may not want to share what might be a private message to someone. If you want to respond privately to a message, send it directly to their personal e-mail address that appears with their message.
Please send a brief message to the list so that people can become acquainted with you. Some people "lurk" for a little while and eventually introduce themselves.
Find your e-mail address on the list. Check the unsubscribe box.

Here are some suggestions for network etiquette.
- Read all messages carefully. Take time to write clear messages. When you're poking fun or joking around, make sure the meaning is clear by using a smiley face :) . There are numerous guides on such "emoticons" and it might be helpful to learn about them.
- Assume that everything you share with the listserv is public and that you might meet or know the persons on the list some day.
- Don't type in capital letters unless you need to emphasize something. It is equivalent to shouting at someone in netspeak.
- When responding to posts on the listserv, use the same "subject" and/or include something from the original post so that people will understand where you are coming from. Stick to that subject. If you're going to change the subject to something completely different then change the subject name.
Send questions about the list to firstname.lastname@example.org.
