On the Road
In addition to sharing in the excitement of student life on campus and witnessing student achievements in the classroom, co-op, and competitions, I have had the pleasure of meeting with alumni, current students, and prospective students from California to Florida and from China to the United Arab Emirates. Making connections for Wentworth to our great alumni is at the foundation of these trips.
It is exciting to meet our graduates and to learn about their professional and personal successes, and I especially enjoy hearing their stories about their time at Wentworth. At these alumni events and meetings, I share updates about the Institute – the recent milestones and momentum and the vision for Wentworth’s future. I also appreciate opportunities to meet with current students to hear about their studies and co-op experiences, as well as prospective high school students to encourage them to pursue rewarding careers in engineering, technology, design, sciences and management and to attend Wentworth. Furthermore, I visit with companies, soliciting employment opportunities for both students on co-op and graduates.
Looking ahead to the 2011-2012 academic year, I plan to travel to the following locations:
- New Hampshire
- Rhode Island
- South Africa
I hope to meet with many alums and students during my travels.
