Why are you "forever green"?

"I absolutely love the people and the culture. Bearcats are down-to-earth people that enjoy being around other people. There is also a grittiness to Bearcats as they always find a way to accomplish goals. The Northwest administration and staff make alumni feel like a big part of the school. I still keep in touch with TKE fraternity brothers as well as going to as many football and basketball games as possible. I simply love the Bearcats!"
