Doug Riddell, BSEE'89


I can still remember when hanging in the Atrium was "THEE" thing to do. It was also the "ONLY" thing to do on campus! Except for the new Ridler Field House. And now look at LTU. They have real sports teams with real smart athletes all over the place, and The Point is now a full-on athletic complex. This is why I decided to put back some time into LTU, because it's changing and evolving and leading at the same time. I am absolutely amazed at how many new degrees in different fields are now being offered. I am encouraging anyone reading this to give back in their own way. Attend an LTUAA sponsored event, come to Homecoming, or consider making a donation.
