Road Shows: Bringing Campus to a Community Near You This Year
The Office of Alumni Affairs continues to reach out to alumni throughout the country, building on relationships established on campus and keeping alumni, family members, and other special friends informed about exciting campus developments.
Special “Rose on the Road” gatherings are being planned this year in a city near you. These events will feature campus leadership, along with alumni and institutional advancement staff members. Efforts are being made to include informational, behind-the-scenes tours at innovative engineering or science attractions.
An event in early February allowed alumni in the Greenville/Spartanburg, South Carolina, area to visit Milliken & Company’s Innovation Gallery. It was hosted by Steven D. Meyer (CHE, 1989) and Alicia (Gehlhausen) Harmon (CHE, 2006) and featured James A. Goecker, vice president for enrollment management.
Other recent events were conducted at the Engineers Club of Dayton, Ohio; BorgWarner’s Powertrain Technical Center in Auburn Hills, Michigan; and in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Providing campus updates were Phillip J. Cornwell, vice president for academic affairs, and James A. Bertoli, executive director of alumni affairs. Alumni hosts were Morgan Bruck (ME, 1969), Robert E. Johnson (EE, 1952), Christopher Lanker (ME, 1992), David Price (EE, 1986), and Autumn (Weddle) Faith (CHE, 2003).
The alumni office is also reaching out to graduates and their families by hosting receptions before performing arts shows in Rose-Hulman’s Hatfield Hall Theater and having a behind-the-scenes tour of UAP’s new medical office building in Terre Haute, organized by Garmong Construction and Hannum, Wagle & Cline Engineering.
More happenings are planned for this year. Look for events as they are posted on the alumni website at rosestem.rose-hulman.edu.
