A note of thanks from the acting president

Submitted by on 2019/11/06 – 8:30 am

Many thanks to everyone who took part in Saturday’s Open House. The excitement of our campus and future students is inspiring and infectious – and a great reminder of why we do what we do.

Everyone I spoke to mentioned the friendly, welcoming atmosphere and the excitement of the faculty, staff and students who were there to show the best our university has to offer. Today, it’s more important than ever that all of us focus on our prospective and current students and to demonstrate the relevance of a university education.

Events like this do not happen without an enormous amount of planning and cooperation across many departments. I want to thank everyone at the university who had a hand in organizing Open House. I also want to particularly acknowledge the hard work done by the Office of Communications and Marketing, in the logistics and marketing of such an important event.

John McGrath
Acting President
