Dear CBE Students,

CBE Dean

It is with great pleasure that I write to you in the first issue in 2008-2009 of CBE Connect, the Towson University student newsletter created specially for business students. As each issue finds its way to you, I hope you enjoy reading about what your student organizations are up to along with other important news including advising, internships, career advice, events and networking opportunities, and more.

As a graduate of the Towson University College of Business and Economics (CBE), it warms my heart to read this newsletter, a publication written by students for students enrolled in our College. While you may receive plenty of e-mails from friends, family and professors, I assure you that you won’t want to skip this one as it appears in your inbox each month. As the semester progresses, I hope your experience at Towson is the best as you make new memories and friends that will last you a lifetime.
