As we write this letter on St. Patrick’s Day, looking out onto our desolate campus, we cannot help but wonder, “Why?” Why is our world being consumed in a global pandemic that seems unstoppable? Why is senior year coming to an end like this? Why were we not prepared? For many of us, it has been difficult to make sense of this chaos and try to find some positives in a time of great darkness.
Be kind to yourselves, be kind to each other and be present for one another. Grieving takes time and is not easy, but you have the resources around you to hold you in love and grace and to help you to walk through this.
Whether it seems like it or not, everyone around you is struggling in one way or another.
Happy fall! We hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather, settling into the school year, having a blast supporting our top-10 football team and surviving your midterms as best as possible.
Welcome back home under the dome! We hope you all had wonderful, restful summers and are ready for a great year ahead. Up in room 203 LaFun we have been busy welcoming the new members of our cabinet, starting the year off in Student Senate and working hard to create the best campus for all of you.
Happy springtime! We hope you’re enjoying the warm weather and the budding tulips and getting ready for summer break!
