Roosevelt alumna Barbara Fox shares her fond memories of Roosevelt University

Roosevelt graduate Barbara Fox, who graduated from Roosevelt in 1958, writes about her experiences with RU in her article “Memories of Roosevelt.”

Fox, a published author and playwrite, shares her memories of Roosevelt and her husband, Shelly Fox, who also graduated from Roosevelt. This is one of many relationships that blossomed under Roosevelt’s roof.

Fox writes “I think I’ll join the Roosevelt Alumni Association: I’m sure they’ll remember me, it’s only been fifty (or more) years.”

Well, we love to read stories, memories and anecdotes from our alum – and we have definitely not forgotten Barbara Fox.
