Chad Buckendahl is one of the first ever Internet marketers to build an e-commerce business over $1 million. Since then, he has built over 7 multi-million dollar online businesses. His career has allowed him to actively lead online initiatives spanning from California to the United Kingdom, Germany and now back to Denver, Colorado. For the last 20 years, Mr. Buckendahl has been at the forefront of reaching consumers through the Internet. Chad’s unique story is much broader than a successful Buena Vista University graduate. At a young age, Chad suffered four debilitating strokes while in a wrestling match and has defied the odds at every turn. His story is one that is not just appropriate for business-minded students but one that will resonate with anyone that has ever been told that they can’t do something in life.

One will be located next to the Mailroom in the Forum, one in the Faculty and Staff entrance of the Fieldhouse, and two in the Pierce-White atrium. This change stems from listening to student needs expressed by Student Senate. A proposal was put forth and approved. In the future all new construction will include gender-neutral restroom considerations.
