The Division of Student Affairs Newsletter

Dear Colleagues,

I am excited to share with you the August newsletter and hope that you will take a few moments out of your busy schedule to read a few updates in the division. I hope that you find these useful. Please feel free to share them with fellow University colleagues, as appropriate. 

 As the summer comes to an end, I hope you were able to take some time away with friends and family to rest and rejuvenate as we prepare to kick-off another great year. I am always invigorated by the energy our students bring back to campus, and many have already begun to arrive. I’m especially looking forward to welcoming our first year students this Sunday at the President’s Convocation.

The video on the left is one of my favorite Ted Talks, and provides a message I hope you will consider as we start another academic year.

I look forward to seeing you all on September 5 at the Division Kickoff – good luck with opening!
