BU Law welcomes Samantha Waite to Esdaile Alumni Center Staff

A message from Cornell Stinson, Assistant Dean for Development & Alumni Relations:

"Please join me in welcoming our newest staff member, Samantha Waite, to the Esdaile Alumni Center at BU Law and to the greater University Development division overall.

Some of you may recognize Samantha, who has been working in the Alumni Office since July as a temporary employee. We are delighted to welcome Samantha as our new full-time Senior Staff Coordinator, who will be assisting with our alumni programming and stewardship, annual giving program and in supporting our major gift officer position (once it is filled).

Samantha is originally from Maine and received her Bachelor’s degree in Business from Saint Anselm College in Manchester, NH. As a student, Samantha interned in the Alumni Relations and Advancement Programming department and assisted with their Reunion events. Prior to joining BU Law, she worked for the Bowdoinham, ME Town Office in their Economic Development department as a Project Coordinator, focusing on different projects and events for the Town.

You can reach Samantha at swaite@bu.edu or at 617.353.3118. We are very pleased to have her join our team!"
