Van Wilder stretched his college career to seven years. Seven glorious years of parties, fund-raising events, intramural sports and even some classes.
While some of us extend our college tenure past the typical four, a lot of students cram the requirements into only eight semesters. But the proverbial party shouldn’t stop there. What happens after graduation?
CSU graduates should be proud to be alumni of this establishment, and the alumni center must reflect that pride.
The Alumni Board is pushing to build a new Alumni/Welcome Center complex on the east side of campus – and they should.
Visitors often see the alumni building first when they take a campus tour. If the Alumni Center is our first impression, $18 million to $20 million of private funds is a small price to pay.
Supporters say the project’s goal is to improve student/alumni relations.
A new, more student-friendly alumni center would do just that.
Not only that, but providing better headquarters for alumni would help us network in the future.
