Well, spring has finally sprung in the Burgh!
It may have been a long, miserable winter, but it’s been an enjoyable one for RMU sports fans. Last month, the university saw its sports teams on ESPN six times. This included the men’s and women’s basketball NEC Championship games, the men’s first and second round NIT games, and the women’s NCAA first-round game against Notre Dame. RMU hockey also made its debut when it took on the University of Minnesota in the Sweet Sixteen in St. Paul.
On my recent journeys to neighboring states, I’ve been able to spend some quality time with many familiar and new alumni. RMU Alumni events in Cleveland, Philadelphia, and Washington, D.C., drew favorable numbers of attendees, and further down the eastern seaboard, our Florida receptions were also warm and friendly. Locally we’ve had some afternoon lunches with alumni from PNC and Highmark, and next month we look forward to noon-time gatherings with folks from Alcoa and Schneider Downs.
Last but not least, we held our third Annual March Madness Alumni Reception on Pittsburgh’s North Side at Atria’s. What a treat it was to see students, alumni, professors, and friends all come together for an evening of sharing! These types of events really afford students and recent grads the opportunity to pick the minds of our many great alumni about the world of work they are preparing to enter.
And if you didn’t know, or you somehow forgot, at Robert Morris…IT’S ALL ABOUT THE STUDENTS!
