“As a college president, the first day of classes is my second favorite day of the year – the first being Commencement, of course,” President Drumm said. “I would like to welcome our new and returning students, our faculty and staff for another successful academic year. I look forward to seeing all of our students achieve their academic goals, and walk across the stage in May.”
