DEAR ALUMNI, FRIENDS, & STUDENTS,
Since my arrival here more than two years ago, I believe we have made significant progress in several different areas: attracting top students, recruiting faculty from ranked institutions, achieving our first-ever ranking, improving our existing programs and creating new and innovative ones, markedly improving student internship opportunities and job placement -- just to mention a few.
But one of the tremendous improvements we have made is that of how we communicate everything we do to you, the B&E Family. From this monthly eNewsletter to our highly praised biannual B&E Magazine; from the Distinguished Speaker Series that provides access to highly successful members of the global business community to students, the University community and the public to a commitment to social media communications that has increased our reach by thousands; and from the creation of the Roll of Distinguished Alumni to the continued honoring of inductees into the West Virginia Business Hall of Fame, it is critical to keep you all informed and up-to-date.
B&E is proud of the progress we have made on these fronts as well as several others, but it is incumbent upon us to let you know what we're up to and how we're getting there. Our College is blessed with involved groups that define who we are such as students, faculty and staff, alumni, donors and Friends of the College. They want to know more and more about us because, quite frankly, our College believes we have a better story to tell you than ever before.
Follow us on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn, or contact us. The last thing we want to do is keep what we are doing a secret, and it will be a pleasure to have you along for the ride.
