President’s Corner: A walk across campus brings fond memories
Dear Salve Regina Family:
Thank you so much to the faculty and staff who were able to join our Town Hall conversation last Friday. Though it is an odd way to congregate, I found it deeply comforting to know that we were all in the same virtual space together.
I’ve been amazed by how the essence of Salve Regina continues to shine through, even in altered modalities. Your kindness to me and one another is a constant through all of the chaos that we are managing in these strange days. We’ll be hosting another Town Hall focused on our students to answer any questions or concerns as they navigate this remote environment on Wednesday, April 22, at 2 p.m.
A note of deep gratitude to our amazing Enrollment Management team for the incredible job they accomplished by hosting our first “virtual” Connections Day last Saturday, with over 400 prospective students in attendance. I know that many members of our Salve Regina community participated in this event either through taped or live sessions, which is deeply appreciated, along with those who are supporting the Open House for rising high school juniors and seniors this coming Sunday. These are critical events for our future as our prospective families are unable to visit Salve Regina in person.
Since the pandemic, I am one of the few people still living on campus because my residence is on site, and I usually walk back and forth from the house on Shepard Ave to my office in Ochre Court each day. It is hard to witness our beautiful campus empty of people, and I am longing to see you all again.
I thought that you also might be missing views of your Salve Regina home, so below are a few photos from my treks across campus:
We are here for you, dear Salve Regina, and always will be.
