Josh Law ’13 never stops. At least he doesn’t seem to. Only two years out of college, Law has accomplished more in the six years since his senior year of high school than most do in a decade or two. Currently employed at Union Bank & Trust in Waynesboro, Va., as a financial services advisor, he is also working toward attending graduate school to get an M.B.A.
He was first drawn to think about attending Bridgewater College by high school friends, and when he first set foot on campus in January 2009, he said, “It felt like home.” Though he was a commuter student from Augusta Country for all four years, he hit the ground running as a freshman and never looked back.
Law was the president of his pledge class for Alpha Phi Omega (APO), a national service fraternity, and would eventually serve as president of the BC chapter for both his junior and senior years. In the spring of 2015, he was appointed the alumni coordinator for the BC chapter of APO.
While an active member of the student body, as well as a student senator who would become vice president of the student body his senior year, Law was also busy working. His jobs and internships included working as a manager for Regal Cinemas in Staunton, Va., being a social media and marketing intern for Coldwell Banker and becoming a licensed real estate agent in the spring of his sophomore year. As a senior, he interned in the president’s office at Bridgewater for both semesters.
“I appreciated the opportunity I had to gain skills and use those skills for the benefit of the community,” he said. A business administration major, Law developed close relationships with professors such as Dr. Lou Pugliese and Prof. Ronald Kline.
Still enthusiastic about being part of the Bridgewater community, he attends local alumni happy hours and football and basketball games with the Eagle Club. At BC’s 2015 Relay for Life, he was captain of the first ever BC alumni team, which raised more than $1,800 for the American Cancer Society. His brother Justin is a member of the class of 2017.
Now the permanent class president of the class of 2013, Law is beginning the last year of a three-year term on the BC Alumni Association board of directors. “We all have a responsibility to help out and give back,” he said.
