The month of April is the time that we pause to celebrate the accomplishments of our students.   It is the month of honors banquets, sports banquets, graduate school acceptance letters, and news of a first job.   We believe in encouraging our students to dream big and then count it a privilege to cheer them on as they succeed.

I hope this spring allows you time to reflect on your accomplishments and to embrace new opportunities for growth.   Whether it be for an April event or a summer class, we look forward to seeing you on campus soon.
