Distinguished Donor eNewsletter ~ December 2014 Excerpt

Reflecting With Gratitude

Greetings Distinguished Donors,

Our Department of Marketing is my home department, full of energy, a premiere sales program, and involved alumni who are back on campus annually. This month we feature the Department of Marketing in your newsletter. Together, with the leadership of the department, we would like to reflect on the year gone by and celebrate the generosity of others.

In the spirit of the season, we would like to say thank you to all those who have donated to the College of Business over the past year. The students, faculty, and staff offer a special “thanks” to two young marketing alumni, Bryan Kreske and Katie Oswald, who each made generous donations directly to the department at the Dean’s Circle level.

Your support has enabled us to develop the programs highlighted in this month’s newsletter, and also provides much needed scholarship support for both current and incoming students. In addition, your valued contributions have allowed our students to attend professional conferences, compete in regional and national competitions, engage in real-world consulting experiences, network with recruiters, and enabled us to remain up-to-date with new selling and interactive technologies that students will utilize in their marketing careers.

We look forward to seeing you in the new year. Please stop by or give one of us a call directly to connect.


Season’s Best,

Denise D. Schoenbachler, Ph.D.
Dean, NIU College of Business

Geoff Gordon, Ph.D.
Chair, Department of Marketing

Emily Cronauer
