Eric Linn M’99 was given an educational opportunity at RMU that he will never forget. After his applications to two graduate schools of business were denied, he was accepted to RMU on a probationary admittance.
Nelle Stahura ’07 M’15 gave up her job as an account executive in New York to follow one of her passions – rowing. She is now the head coach for the Colonials women’s rowing team. “As an employee, it is amazing to give students the personal attention that I received as an undergrad,” she says. While at RMU, Nelle was a student athlete on the rowing crew while majoring in communication with a concentration in advertising. Now she handles everything from recruiting to fundraising for RMU’s NCAA Division I program. “I’m like the group’s very responsible aunt,” she says.
“At first, I didn’t even know if I was going to attend college, but after I was accepted and found out a mutual friend was attending, that changed,” he says. His father was an influential advocate for Bob enrolling in the school’s first integrated bachelor’s-master’s degree program in information systems management and internet information systems. Recently, Bob went back and earned his M.B.A. online from his alma mater.
