Spring's Coming: Celebrating Growth All Around!

Fellow Transfer Students,

I just had the pleasure of meeting about another dozen or so new transfer students at a Spring welcome event. It is always such a joy to meet new students and I am always amazed at the discoveries that I come across at these events. It is a good reminder for me to hear the presentations about the values and mission of this university, especially because I see those words being put into action every day on campus.

I see people branching out and testing new experiences, whether it is a new book or a flavor of coffee that they have never tried before. I am a firm believer that we learn by exploring, by stepping a bit beyond our comfort zones, by just being open to the wonders around us. I also see the grounds staff doing their magic and coaxing and nurturing the new life in the plants all around the campus.

Is there a theme here or a message; perhaps just this – spring is coming and this is a time of renewal and new growth; of both people and nature beginning to bloom and burst forth. Let’s all be gentle to each other and savor the beauty and wonder that surrounds us all.
