Jim Dalton

Fall, college football, and the start of the school year are quickly approaching. As we look forward to welcoming another great group of students, we also reflect on the accomplishments of our faculty and alumni and the rich tradition of excellence they have built. As you will read below, there are many ways to stay connected to your alma mater, and for students to connect with those who’ve walked this path before them. I encourage all of you to stay connected, because no matter where you go, you are never far from that place you once called home and to the people who are forever known as the Leaders and Best.

Go Blue!

Dean James Dalton
