The beginning of each new semester is a very exciting and hopeful time. As I’ve walked the campus these last two weeks, it is obvious what our students mean to the university. You give the university a certain rhythm and an energy that is palpable. In short, you give the campus “life.”
By now you should be settled into your new routine. It is my hope that your classes are off to a great start. I encourage you to get involved in the many activities occurring around campus this semester, but I urge you to remember that attending class regularly, completing your assignments on time, and establishing a positive relationship with your professors are keys to a successful semester. The university is here to support you in your efforts, but you must do your part to ensure a positive outcome. Your success is our success. If you need assistance in any way, please contact the Student Affairs Office or take advantage of the services in the Academic Success Center.
Good luck and welcome! We’re glad you’re here.
