That's hard to measure, says Marilyn Roseboro,
director of public relations at WSSU who has handled
some of the school's alumni relations since
Winslow Lowery, former alumni director, resigned.
"In development, it is difficult to say just how
much the alumni give," Roseboro says, "because
sometimes the gifts are not credited to the development
office. They give to athletics and to different
departments and that makes it difficult to give them
credit for what they give."
It's also difficult to determine how much the alumni
give at WSSU because, until September, the alumni
office at WSSU was not a part of the school. The
