The time has finally arrived. On Monday, March 30th, your semester resumes on the online teaching platform that our professors have been preparing for you this past week. We are not only ready for you, we are enthusiastically ready for you and hope that you are ready too. I can tell you that your online experience will be substantive and rigorous, and a perfect way, under the circumstances, for you to complete this semester’s studies. So, let’s get back to work and find a way to strike a good educational chord together.
The lifeblood of our university is, and has always been, embodied in the work of our students, faculty and staff. It is especially sad for me to look across the quad and witness a campus absent of people and activity. We really do miss all of you. But we are a strong and dedicated college. I am certain that you will all pull your weight and conclude this semester honorably, and then wait for that happy day when we can all return to campus in some state of normalcy.
