Welcome from the President

Dear Hawks:

Welcome back to class. This was my tenth summer at Monmouth and by far the busiest; not just for me but for the many staff, administrators and faculty who worked here over the last three months. From simple improvements to drainage in a few areas and brighter lights around

Wilson Hall, to the newly constructed Rechnitz Hall (Art Building), to a new Trading Room in the Business School, to new ARAMARK dining options, and many more improvements, we continue to make the campus something about which to be proud.

We are in the final throes of opening graduate classes in the Monmouth Park Corporate Center, just less than two miles away. Psychological Counseling will open there this year and the new Physician’s Assistant program next year. This is big step for us. It also gives us a bit more elbowroom on the main campus.

You will see changes in Howard Hall: a new home for Psychology. Expect continual changes this year to the labs in Edison Hall.

We have a full, new first-year class and several hundred transfer students. This is a terrific new class. I’ve met many of our new students and they are confident, from diverse backgrounds, and highly qualified.

The Olympics were a feature of summer TV. You saw Monmouth Alumna, Christie Rampone, compete in her 4th Olympics and win her 3rd gold medal. Athletic energy is contagious, I think. You will see Olympic-like spirit in our fall sports program. I hope to see you at Kessler Field and/or on the Great Lawn supporting our teams.

So it’s back to work, renewing friendships, making progress towards career success and getting involved with the University that you comprise.

Welcome back. As you start/re-start, take a moment feel great about yourselves. Take care of each other.


Paul G. Gaffney II
