Welcome to all of our new and returning students! I am thrilled to extend greetings to you, along with my hope that your Loyola experience this year is exciting and enriching—I am confident that it will be. And to our esteemed Loyola faculty—including the many new faculty who have joined us this month, along with our dedicated staff—you likewise have my best wishes for a productive year. I am grateful for all that you do on behalf of the students who are entrusted to our care. Here’s to an outstanding academic year and I look forward to working with you and for you.
