Frank & Rudy Off for Road Trip 2012

July 6, 2012

Frank and Rudy are hitting the road for a summer road trip and they may be coming to your town. Students Frank Ruvoli ’13 and Rudy Altergott ’13 will be seven stops over the next week to meet alumni in St. Louis to Cincinnati with stops in between.

“The goal is to provide low or no cost alumni events (social and casual in nature) to engage and reengage alumni in key areas around the Midwest,” said Associate Director of Alumni Relations Mike Warren. “In 2011 we focused on cities primarily in Indiana and in 2012 we will be extending the trip into areas outside the state. We are trying to reach our younger alumni with these events, but include all alumni, current students, parents, and friends.”

The two students representing Wabash this summer are excited to get rolling.

“I think meeting with the alumni is great,” said Ruvoli, a native of northwest Indiana. “It’s the whole thing about Wabash that our alums are so close to the College. And it’s a great chance for Rudy and me to meet alumni who live a little farther away. Not all alumni get the chance to come to campus very often so it’s great for the alumni and for us.”

Altergott said the experience is typical Wabash. “Where else but Wabash would you ride around in a van like the one we have and to be trusted by the College to drive around the country meeting alums? Isn’t that Wabash?”
