Hello and welcome to the home of the Colonials! I’m Greg Dell’Omo, president of Robert Morris University.
Another beautiful summer here on campus has given way to fall, and we recently welcomed 880 first-time students as well as 180 transfer students, from 27 states (including Alaska) and 14 nations. This is one of RMU's largest freshman classes; in fact, the five freshman classes that have entered the university since Fall 2009 have been the largest in our history, with record enrollment among residential students, international students, and students coming from outside Pennsylvania.
Of course, topping last year's achievements will be no small feat. Among them:
Now here’s something else I think is worth setting apart: RMU currently has a 92% placement rate, with 85% of graduates working and 7% enrolled in graduate school within a year of commencement. What’s more, of those who are working, 88% are employed in their field of choice. Robert Morris alumni are entrepreneurs and CEOs, business owners as well as the people who power some of the region’s most venerated and successful corporations, like PNC, Dick’s Sporting Goods, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and the Pittsburgh Steelers.
We have many exciting opportunities and challenges ahead. Over the next several months we will be unveiling our next five-year strategic plan, which will allow RMU to prepare our students for a lifetime of professional success, engagement, and well-being. It will be a thrilling journey, and one I hope you take with us.
