    Dr. Neal Weaver began his duties as vice president for university advancement and executive director of the Nicholls Foundation on November 3, 2014. His responsibilities include coordinating the university’s development activities, directing marketing initiatives, managing campus fundraising activities and overseeing the Office of University Relations, Printing and Design Services, Office of Alumni Affairs, and the Office of Development. Dr. Weaver said, “I’ve been doing advancement work for the last 20 to 23 years and worked at three institutions before I came here.” He described his advancement work as a combination of public relations, marketing communications, advertising, and promotions amongst a myriad of other external activities. His previous experience with advancement has come from his work at Southeastern Oklahoma State University, Northeastern State University in Oklahoma, and West Texas A&M University. Concerning his vision for the advancement of Nicholls State University and the role that alumni can play, Dr. Weaver said that a big thing is to get alumni involved with the institution. He added, “We want them to see the Alumni Federation as a way to enhance their lives, whether it be socially and culturally or professionally. We hope to be able to provide services and benefits that allow them to engage with us in ways that are meaningful to them.” Dr. Weaver also pointed out the importance of getting alumni to be able to connect to the university as a way to improve Nicholls, which in turn increases the…...

    Timothy Mohon earned his Bachelor’s of Science in Culinary Arts and graduated in December 2009 from Nicholls State University. He currently holds the title of Director of Food and Nutrition Services at Tulane Medical Center. Mohon was drawn to the artistry involved in culinary arts, as well as the science and business sides involved. He said he chose Nicholls State University because he did not want to attend a vocational school, but rather, he wanted to learn how emulsions work, why searing meat turns brown, and how to cost food. Mohon said, “I wanted to not just learn the techniques, but the purpose behind them. Chef John Folse Culinary Institute definitely helped me in that regard.” He added that his brother also was a student at Nicholls, and when he went visit him, Mohon fell in love with the beautiful campus and campus life. He said that his time at Nicholls was very important to him because he made lifelong friends, experienced places, and tasted food that he otherwise would have missed out on. As captain of the knowledge bowl team, he experienced St. Louis and Chicago. He also went to Paul Bocuse in Lyon, France. Mohon said, “My time at Nicholls meant everything to me. It meant transforming from a high school kid into an adult ready to handle the real world and its pressures.” The friends he met on campus are still huge parts of his life, even…...

    Nicholls graduate and Kean Miller’s executive director Don Champagne remembers his time at Nicholls State University as some of the best years of his life. During those years, Champagne was a member of Pi Kappa Phi fraternity and enjoyed Greek life tremendously. Champagne said he knew Nicholls was the school for him because “NSU was in my backyard and I had received a full T. H. Harris scholarship to attend. It was a no- brainer.” He graduated from Nicholls in December of 1978 with a major in accounting and a minor in computer science. Recently, Champagne was featured in the Greater Baton Rouge Business Report for his accomplishments in the business world. Champagne has come a long way from his first job of cutting grass during the summer months in his neighborhood before entering college at Nicholls. Some of his accomplishments include being a COO at Detusch, Kerrigan & Stiles in New Orleans, passing the CPA exam on his first try and scoring in the top 10% of the state, and his current position of executive director at Kean Miller. Nicholls provided a foundation for Champagne to get to the point he is at today. He said, “My accounting education has been a tremendous foundation for me to advance in business. I started out as an auditor for one of the Big 8 accounting firms (yes there were eight in those days), and worked my way up from there to…...

    For Nicholls graduates Amy Mahler and Rusty Bouvier, Nicholls was a place to embrace their more creative side, to grow, and to explore the world around them in new ways. Both majored in Fine Arts, Amy in Graphic Design and Rusty in Studio Art. The connections they made while at Nicholls led to many things for the pair. After Amy ‘s cousin attended and fell in love with Nicholls, she wanted to share that feeling, too. “I attribute my being at Nicholls to my cousin, who at the time was studying marine biology,” Amy said. “He loved being at Nicholls, and I wanted to share that love, too. I had looked at other schools, but there were so many aspects about Nicholls that piqued my interest! There was no doubt I needed to be at Nicholls.” For Rusty, Nicholl’s close proximity to his hometown of Lockport enabled him to consider college in the first place. “I was 17-years-old and had no plans of going to college,” Rusty said. “I enrolled on a whim and stumbled into the best thing that could have happened to me. I would say that location was the deciding factor.” Beyond providing both individuals with a unique place to explore and learn about the arts, Nicholls fostered friendships and, eventually, a relationship. Amy met Rusty while he was working on his senior exhibition in 2009. The connections that Rusty had with another fellow art student led…...
