The end of the academic year is a busy, but exciting time. From year-end celebrations to finals to commencement, there is much to do. On Monday, April 20th I attended the Presidential Leadership Program dinner. This group, comprised of 25 students, meets with me several times throughout the academic year and participates in service, social, educational and other activities. I look forward to working with next year’s participants and introducing a new leadership workshop series for all students.
On Tuesday, April 21st, BU student athletes were honored at the Top Scholar Athlete Dinner. The dinner was for outstanding athletes and recognized MVPs for each sport and graduating seniors. Congratulations, athletes! BU’s athletes excel both on the field and in the classroom.
This week the Quad will be transformed into our graduation platform. I am delighted to have David McCormick, son of Maryan and James H. McCormick as the commencement speaker. Jim was BU’s president from 1973 to 1983 and PASSHE’s first chancellor. McCormick Center is named after him.
Congratulations, graduates. Good luck to all students on your finals.
