Class of 2001 Graduation Guide

A Message from Alumni Affairs

Dear Graduating Seniors,

I would like to introduce myself as the director of alumni affairs at Berklee College of Music. Having graduated in 1996 with a degree in Music Business/Management, I am very familiar with some of the experiences that you will soon be facing. After several years of working in the music business industry, I witnessed firsthand the importance of developing a strong network base. It is with this that I encourage you to take advantage of as many opportunities as possible to network among each other.

Berklee College of Music brings together a wealth of people, from many different backgrounds, that all share a passion for music. By developing strong relationships and supporting one another, you will be able to achieve what would otherwise be unattainable. Upon graduation, as you officially become part of the Berklee Alumni Network, I urge you to stay in touch and take advantage of its many resources.

Lastly, before you leave, I welcome you to stop by my office (1140 Boylston Street building, room 6E - 6th floor), as I would like to make your acquaintance and assist you in any way possible. I look forward to meeting you, and I wish you the best in the future.


Adrian E. Ross
Director, Alumni Affairs
