Thirteen energetic and motivated Ball State alumni met recently with university officials in New York City. From international banking to film editing, these outstanding graduates are great representatives of Ball State University.

Dr. Patricio Mamot presented copies of his recent books to be added to the Bracken Library collections, and Dr. Tzongjin (Lee) Westfall also contributed a copy of her recently-defended Columbia University doctoral thesis. Nerou Cheng offered to participate in interviews with BSU accounting students interested in his CPA firm's specialty of non-profit organization accounting and auditing. Though most of the alumni were born abroad, Muncie-born international banker Ivan Saval encouraged two others from his class of 1995, fellow Hoosier Jim Jones and Long Island native Tiffany Weisert, to meet with the groups. Others attending are mentioned along with the pictures from the various events October 22-24, 2003.
