My fellow Pilots, I write to you today from Schoenfeldt 212. I include this detail not so that you know where to address your Christmas cards, but because I want you to know that I’ve been here since August. I tell you this because I want to provide information and reassurance about campus life in the midst of a pandemic.
Before school started I was given the wonderful opportunity to help welcome the new students of our campus by speaking at a variety of orientation events and info sessions. Each of these opportunities provided me with the chance to witness the formation of a community of peers.
