After graduating 9 years ago, my college under Marshall hasn't sent me any newsletters of recent events. This is also a complaint of some prominent alumni not living in the Huntington area.
Marshall needs to break out of the community shell, and make efforts to retain its communication with students. Offer courses online or through traditional settings that can provide CEUs for professionals or enhance skillsets of graduate alumni.
Such services and communication of campus events can form a stronger bond with alumni and foster the concept of continual learning.
