Message from the Alumni Director

If your summer was anything like mine, it flew by!  I cannot believe we are already gearing up for move-in, orientation, and the first day of classes.  We are excited to welcome the Class of 2020 to campus, as well as numerous transfer and graduate students.  If you are moving a student into campus, be sure to stop by and say hi! 

Before we know it, Homecoming Weekend will be upon us.  It is earlier this year by nearly three weeks, so don’t let it sneak up on you.  Make your plans now to join us back on campus!
