H Daniel James
1963-1967, Bachelor of Science
I left Washington college in 1967 with a BS in Organic Chemistry. I got a job with EI DuPont and continued employment there for the next 43 years culminating in a role as Sales Head for a $30B corporation. Upon arrival, I felt adrift in a sea of chemical engineers from big name schools. How would I survive and prosper in this very competitive environment? YYThe answer was clear ... clear written and spoken communications. I discovered that the only thing more important than knowing/understanding something was the ability to express this knowledge and its consequences in a clear and powerful fashion. This skill was not one generally possessed by my peers with technical degrees from big engineering schools. The communication skills I learned at Washington College enabled me to standout as an articulate and effective communicator, attributes that are admired and rewarded in the corporate world. Skills that are as rare as they are valuable.
1961-1964, Bachelor of Arts
The entire experience at Washington College-academic and social-involved learning to listen, think and to express yourself so that you could be understood. The essence of the liberal arts education at WC is to see the connections between things and people across lines that are normally drawn and not crossed.
1970-1974, Bachelor of Arts
What I value most about Washington College and still hold dear to this day, is having learned to appreciate and better understand the complexities and dynamics of our challenging and ever changing world. That has tremendous value for me and highlights one of the principal benefits of an excellent liberal arts education.
