This fall will mark the start of my seventeenth year working in the career service arena at WVU, and as I write this, I feel like that must be a typo!

Foundational skills are critical to be successful in most any career. Before an engineer can build a bridge or skyscraper, they need to know calculus. Before a doctor can cure patients, they need to know human anatomy, biology and chemistry.

Accounting Student Receives Top Honors

While I have uncovered many “truths” about giving, this post is going to focus on the very first one I unveiled: the benefits of sentimental gifts.
