Bentley Brief November
Longtime Friend Makes Generous Commitment to the New Bentley MBA | Classes of 2005 - 2013: Double Your Impact to Bentley! | Homecoming Was a Hit

Longtime Friends Make Generous Commitment to the New Bentley MBA

Beverly Myers and her late husband Herbert Myers, trustee emeritus - longtime friends of Bentley - recently made a $1.5 million commitment to support the new Bentley MBA. In honor of this generous gift and their years of meritorious service to Bentley, the MBA studio was recently named in their honor. On October 17, Bentley celebrated their generosity at the dedication of the Herbert J. and Beverly J. Myers MBA Studio. View a photo gallery from the evening.

Classes of 2005 - 2013: Double Your Impact to Bentley!

A generous member of the alumni community invites undergraduate alumni who graduated between 2005 and 2013 to rise to the challenge for Bentley by making a gift to the 2014 Annual Fund. Any gift - up to $1,000 per person - made by a first-time donor from November 20 - December 31 will receive a 1:1 match. This is an opportunity for those who have not yet given to Bentley to increase the value of their first gift. In addition, any new donor who makes a gift on Wednesday, November 20, will receive a special Bentley University magnet! Take a minute to learn more.

Homecoming Was a Hit!

Homecoming took place October 19, on a beautiful fall day. Attendees enjoyed a Falcon football game, the Homecoming festival, face painting and games for the kids, and plenty of Bentley spirit. The Class of 2013 even got the chance to watch the Red Sox clinch the ALCS together at their Zero-Year Reunion! Take a look at a photo gallery and recap of the festivities.
