Welcome Letters: Spring 2013

A Letter From the President

Welcome back. Here we go, springing into 2013.

For most of you, you return after conquering a strange semester. For a few hundred, you are starting with us or transferring to us. Welcome aboard.

I predict an energy-filled spring semester. We will open magnificent Rechnitz Hall, the new art building. We expect to see a few ground breakings on other new facilities by May if the permitting process moves along efficiently. Please join me in the Multipurpose Activity Center (MAC) for track meets and basketball games. Watch for the student-performed spring musical and other entertainment events across campus. Our Global Understanding Convention will involve thousands of you.

As the weather turns warmer, spring sports will be on the field, and many of you will try the beach for the first time in 2013.

Most importantly, you have “can do” momentum from the last semester when you overcame challenges and saw success. It was a rewarding lesson about our ability to get things done.

First thing, please connect with you professors. Then connect with and take care of each other.

Paul G. Gaffney II


A Letter From the Vice President

Welcome and Welcome Back!

I trust you enjoyed the holiday season and semester break and you are well on your way to adjusting to life at Monmouth University. The fall semester was anything but tranquil and I am happy to welcome you and the New Year 2013.

Spring semesters always have a way of flying by us, and this one will be no different. Plan accordingly and take advantage of all that is offered! Come watch our men’s and women’s basketball teams compete in the last season as members of the Northeast Conference. Attend Student Activities Board events throughout campus. And don’t forget to buy your ticket to see “All Time Low,” “Pierce the Veil” and “Mayday Parade” perform in the Multipurpose Activity Center on Saturday, April 27, 2013.

All of this and more is at your fingertips on your campus. Make it the best semester ever. If you need help in any way, reach out – speak up – and ask for help from the myriad of offices that are here to assist you.

Take care of yourself and take care of each other.

My best wishes for a successful Spring 2013 semester!

Mary Anne Nagy

Vice President for Student and Community Services
