I love IPFW! My time at IPFW was instrumental in shaping the leader I've become. Because of those foundatinal experiences, I want to give my time back to the University, and the best way I know how to do that is to be involved in the Alumni Association as a board member as well as a donor. - Denice B., '94 BME, Music Education (Current Board President - IPFW Alumni Association)
Being a part of the IPFW Alumni Association gives me the opportunity to give a little back to the university – but mainly to have some fun with some great people at events like the Mastodon Roast, Homecoming, and July 4th! - Steve F., B.S. ’90, Marketing
I was selected as the Purdue Class Representative for 99-2000 - even though I was 50! I was proud of my personal achievement as a returning adult student and wanted to represent other non-traditional students. I continued to serve on the Alumni Board for professional and personal development - and the friendships and networking are a wonderful bonus! Through local board service, I had the unique opportunity to serve on the Purdue Alumni Board and represent IPFW. Believe me, I made some 'noise' down there to get IPFW the recognition they deserve as a major regional campus! - Sandy M., A.S. '92. Organizational Leadership and Supervision; B.S. ’98, Organizational Leadership and Supervision
I am a lifetime member of the Alumni Association, because the years I spent living and breathing IPFW as a student will always be with me. I want to see the university through its growth, change, and transformation. As each year passes, my loyalty to IPFW as an alum continues to grow. It's been wonderful to be a contributor to the Alumni Association Board of Directors, because it gives graduates a chance to take already great things and make them even better for alumni and IPFW's current students of today. - Andrew W., B.A. ’00, Media and Public Communication; B.S. ’03, Business Management and Administration
