Monday Mission, July 20, 2015
In less than one month we will welcome the largest number of entering undergraduates in our history, more than 800 freshmen according to our latest projections. Hundreds of employees and thousands of friends have helped to recruit this class, but our staff in the admissions office, led by the indomitable Jason Black, deserve the greatest round of applause for their efforts. Thank you, admissions staffers, for your extraordinary service.
The world is better because of the 800 freshmen headed our way . . . and the men and women who recruited them.
