A 1981 graduate whose new job requires commuting from Munich to New York brought his family to Ball State University recently for a visit. Architect Charles Bostick, his wife Birgit and two children were guests of International

Advancement director Martin Limbird at a private dinner party in his home. Dinner guests included Honors College Dean Jim Ruebel, Miller College of Business associate dean Ray Montagno, architecture professor Michele Chiuini and Indiana Academy instructor Fumiko Chiuini. The Chiuinis hosted the Bosticks in their home during a previous Muncie visit.

Bostick also met with emeritus architecture Prof. Marvin Rosenman and College of Architecture dean Joe Bilello to describe his new duties as vice president, Seele LP. In this new role, Bostick represents the German firm which specializes in producing laminated glass. Stairways made with Seele glass are to be found in the Seattle Public Library and the Apple Store on Fifth Avenue in New York City.

Bostick has shown sustained interest in his alma mater, having attended two previous alumni events in Europe as well as meeting with architecture students participating in a European study program.
