A Message of Gratitude from Dean Lang

November 23, 2020 

Dear Liberal Arts Undergraduates: 

I hope this message finds you well, and I hope those of you traveling recently arrived at your destinations safely. 

With fall break upon us, I wanted to thank you for your resilience and perseverance under unique circumstances. While the fall semester and this past year have certainly been trying, your willingness to pivot and adapt, and your never-wavering commitment to succeed continue to amaze and inspire me and others. 

I hope this week provides ample opportunities to relax, unwind, and reconnect with family and friends when you are able to do so safely. I will be in touch again once the fall semester resumes. Until then, please continue to be well, be safe, be smart, and be careful!
