Dean's Message | Mariale Hardiman

Welcome to the 2016-17 academic year! While summer is the official start of the new academic calendar and for many of us a busy time, I still hope you were able to enjoy some down time during these past summer months. Time away from the day-to-day grind, like an athlete having to rest after a competition, is necessary and restorative. The beginning of the school year is a special time. It’s imbued with excitement and anticipation, and I’m confident that you’re as eager as I am to make this year better than the last.
