Alumni
  • One may judge a University by its faculty, its
  • research, or its students, but the best measure
    is
  • the quality and character of its alumni, as
    reflected
  • in their professional achievement, in their
    citizen
  • service, in the way they live and in the values
    by
  • which they live.
