Dean's Reception

The RMU School of Business had its annual Dean's Reception on Friday, August 22nd. The purpose of the Dean's Reception is to allow incoming and transfer students to meet the Dean and faculty and socialize.
Dean John Beehler, Ph.D gave a brief speech about the School of Business and what his goals and expectations are for the school, not just for the coming academic year, but for years to come.
