Ladies and gentlemen, Ross Wade is leaving the building.

Wade, the assistant director of career services for Elon University's School of Communications, announced he will be leaving Elon March 1 to begin a new job at Duke University as assistant director of career services for the masters of engineering program.

“This is a great opportunity to learn a lot of new skills,” Wade said. “And I live in Durham and the office is a 10-minute walk from my home, so this job came with both a lot of professional and personal advantages.”

Wade received his master’s degree in counseling from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro before accepting his current position at Elon. He said he will miss working with the students the most.

“The students have been the best part of the job for me,” Wade said. “And it was a pleasure to watch them go from being students to becoming alumni and maintaining contact with them in their professional careers.”
