What a turn out!!! Mr. Robert Good, a graduate of St. Thomas Aquinas College with both his BS and MBA was kind enough to come back on campus and speak to a room packed with our students. He shared how he got to where he is, what exactly his role is at Goldmans and gave amazing advice throughout the presentation. Students asked many thoughtful and intelligent questions about his career path and his current position. Our first Annual Alumni Connection Event was a hit!   Thank you to Mr. Good for his time and efforts on making this program a success!
