COOK '07 // St. Louis, Missouri
Washington University in St. Louis, Director, First Year Center
I chose my career because of my out-of-classroom experiences at SLU. As a student, I served as a SLU 101 Leader, University 101 Peer Instructor, and in Oriflamme. I now run similar programs at WashU.
My junior year, my roommates and I would make "family dinners" in our apartment in Grand Forest. Sometimes I think I ate better back then than I do now. My roommates were great cooks, and we had a lot more leisure time to sit, relax and talk.
Cook '07 // Denver, Colorado
Pure Barre, Digital Marketing Manager
Every class presented an opportunity for a new challenge to grow, push myself and expand my horizons. It never failed that my professors knew how to invoke a spirit of "never stop learning," which I carry with me to this day.
Too many to count (including every gathering with friends), but cheering on the basketball team courtside night after night is one of my most cherished (and one most don't believe I did!).
A&S '07 // Dallas, Texas
Copywriter, The Richards Group
I created my first portfolio out of the ad program at SLU and in advertising, it's your portfolio that lands you the job. In creating that portfolio, I learned that being a copywriter was a job (a fun one!), I learned the basics of how to do that job, and I also learned a little bit about the other roles involved in creating ads. With all of that information, I was able to get into the Creative Circus (an advertising portfolio school) and land my dream job after graduation.
Bill Tyler telling me that I could get paid to do what came naturally to me: write ads. Oh, and participating in the National Student Advertising Competition.

JCSB '07 // St. Louis, Missouri
Senior Magnager, Internal Audit, Express Scripts
The many team projects in the Business school helped prepare me for the broad groups of people I work with every day. SLU taught me how important collaboration and mutual respect.
All the SLU basketball games I attended as a member of Blue Crew at the Scottrade Center. I continue those memories as a season ticket holder in the amazing new Chaifetz Arena.

JCSB '07 and '12 // Chesterfield, Missouri
Wealth Manager, Plancorp, LLC
SLU provided me with a top-notch education both for undergraduate and graduate degrees. It has opened doors for jobs as well as networking opportunities. I'm proud to be a two-time graduate of SLU's amazing business school.
Attending all of the SLU basketball games with my amazing friends in the Blue Crew! I especially enjoyed our road trips! The team wasn't always the best, but we always had a great time! I also have fun memories of living in the basement of Walsh my freshman year.
Catching up with old friends and seeing how campus has changed.
A&S '07 // Boulder, Colorado
Research Scientist, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
It gave me a well-rounded education and understanding on a variety of subjects. This education was vital to my growth after graduating, both when pursuing my Ph.D. in Colorado and in my current professional career.
I enjoyed very much the times when I worked at the many sports events as part of my work study job, such as volleyball, basketball, etc. These were fun to take part in, especially being involved in giving out shirts and promotions to the fans!
I am excited to catch up with old friends but also an opportunity to meet others who I may not have interacted with during my time at SLU. I enjoy networking and meeting new people.
