Welcome back. And, if you are one of about 450 new students here, welcome to Monmouth University.
I trust you all had a great Winter Break and that you are ready to engage in the spring semester. The semester will be filled with activities; athletic events in the MAC; the Spring Musical in February; the Global Understanding Convention in April; then we go out into the improving weather with spring sports, Spring Fest and lastly, a few good days at the beach.
There will be a great deal going on. Your most important task, however, is establishing an immediate and useful academic relationship with your new professors and focusing on good results in class. Amer-ica needs well-educated young leaders to take us back to prosperity. You are our best hope. Do well.
Welcome back and … take care of each other

P.S. Those of you within a semester or two of graduation should plan to talk to the Career Services Office on the lower level of the Stafford Center.
