Welcome to the personal home page of Boyd R. Beckwith

How did a guy from the midwest ever get pulled to the Bayou City? It was an interesting journey so I've left some major trailmarkers below:
Growing up near Cincinnati, Ohio  View of Ohio River and Cincinnati Skyline
Following my love for music (a B.A. in Music) and a desire not to starve (a B.A. in Business Administration) at Bowling Green State University 
Receiving my Master's degree in Student Affairs from Indiana University of Pennsylvania 
My first job as Coordinator of Student Activities at Indiana University Southeast
Getting "tech"nical as Associate Program Director for the Georgia Tech Student Center 
Meeting my life partner 
The job that took me to The University of Arizona, Associate Director of the Department of Student Programs 
When the Department of Student Programs merged with the Arizona Student Unions I became the Program Director for Operations. 
Downsizing - I decided that I wanted more interaction with students so I look ed for a job at a smaller university.  This led my to my current position as Director of the Student Center at Rice University in Houston, TX.
Articles about me and/or the Student Center that have appeared in the Rice News.
