From Dean Chris Makaroff
Dear Alumni and Friends:
As we come to the end of yet another productive calendar year in the College of Arts and Science, I thought that I would share just a few notable highlights:
A great many of our achievements are due to the active support and engagement of our active community of alumni. We value your time spent on campus with our students, the internships and jobs you help us identify, and all of the financial support you have provided us to help enrich our educational offerings. It is my honor and great joy to thank you for everything you have done and continue to do to help support, enrich, and nurture our students.
Finally, I know that many of you are considering making gifts before the end of the year. I ask that you please keep the College of Arts and Science in mind as you do so.
Here's wishing all of you a safe and joyous holiday season. See you again in 2024!
Love and Honor,
