There is no doubt that at this time of year you are beginning to wonder how the summer went by so quickly. Perhaps you are thinking about your kids going back to school or trying to cram in last-minute vacations before the fall.
Although I too wish the summer would last just a little longer, I always look forward to the start of the fall semester. After a quiet summer, the students will return this month, full of stories to share from their summer vacation and probably a little anxious about what the coming year has in store for them. Faculty return to campus energized and ready to meet the year’s challenges head on. The fall is my favorite time on campus because of the wonderful energy and spirit that fills the air.
Autumn at Viterbo also offers a wonderful opportunity for you as an alumnus/a to celebrate. Alumni Weekend 2008 will take place Friday, Oct. 10–Sunday, Oct. 12. We have a fantastic line-up of events and activities throughout the weekend. This year’s theme is “Harvest of Memories,” and we hope you’ll join us to share those memories with your friends and former classmates. Look for a registration form inside the front cover of this magazine and visit www.viterbo.edu/alumni.aspx?id=36172 to view a full schedule of events.
I hope you’ll join us and celebrate one of the best times of the year at Viterbo!
All the best,
Jen Roberdeau ’04
Director of Alumni Relations
