Howdy!

It was amazing to greet parents, grandparents and siblings who were on campus attending this year's Alumni Reunion and Family Weekend.  Despite the soggy but much needed rain, the campus was buzzing with family members spending time with their students, meeting alumni and experiencing the exciting weekend events including a Bell Tower BBQ dinner, attending class with students and a wonderful student talent show. 

Mid-semester exams are right around the corner and with them brings a lot of stress and anxiety for college students.  This issue of the newsletter contains a lot of information that parents can pass on to their students as they start to tackle their upcoming exams.
