Dear alums and friends,

We’re a few weeks into a new academic year, and the view from my office window is markedly different from that of previous months. The energy and enthusiasm of the students and faculty members filling the sidewalks is heartwarming. Colleagues catching up as they pass each other, students in groups heading to class and the library, the cheerful return of chatter on Shafer Court — all are welcome experiences thanks to our return to in-person learning.

This scene is the result of the hard work of our advisers, faculty and administration, who spent many hours thoughtfully preparing for the school year. We look forward to supporting students in this transition and helping each of them progress toward graduation.

I hope you’ll take a moment to catch up with the College through this newsletter. Take good care.
