June 2013 Alumni Newsletter
June 2013 Issue
Hello! It’s a pleasure to be able to greet you officially as president of Bridgewater College. My first few weeks have been terrific, and I’m grateful for the opportunities I’ve already had to meet some of you at our regional events. Although campus is quiet right now, I’m so excited for our students to arrive in August. I look forward to getting to know them, and getting to know many of you as well. I want to hear your stories of BC and share with you all the great things going on here now. I hope you can join us at an event in your area this year or that we’ll see you on campus for a sporting event, convo or Homecoming.
Best wishes for a great summer.
