EVENING WITH ALUMNI VIDEO AVAILABLE
On Jan. 30, 2016, seven alumni served on a panel addressing Roeper and non-Roeper families on the Roeper advantage. Sarah North, '98, Will McDowell, '07, Patrick O'Connor, '78, Erecenia Friday, '97, Fiona Ruddy, '06, Lori Lutz, '75, and Marc Gorelick, '83, spoke about their entry into our school, their experiences while here and how their lives after Roeper were shaped by the educational experience. The audience came away better understanding the "Roeper Difference." This was an admissions, retention and marketing initiative and it really worked. You can access that video by clicking HERE.
