Welcome to a new and exciting school year! As August winds down, life will return to the campus and the temporary calm felt across the university will be transformed with new life. The class of 2020 is arriving!
One thing that I love to do around this time of year is be helpful. These little moments happen in the Johnson Center food court, or while walking near the statue, when a parent or a student is trying to find their way in their new world. I do my best to carry my Mason ID and make it visible, so they know I can help.
Soon, students will wander through the campus with fresh perspectives. As part of their daily lives, we help craft their experiences. I have no doubt that there is a staff member each student can look back on and thank for their kindness. We bring out the best in Mason!
I hope that the start of the new school year is kind to you and the stress is manageable. Remember, we are working for futures here!
