The 23rd Annual Director’s Circle Recap

Last week, myself and my coworkers in the Office of Residence Life put on our annual Director’s Circle program, which honors freshmen who in their first semester earned a 3.5 GPA or higher. It’s a great program, and one of the older traditions in our department. Enjoy some pictures of the event, which featured, among other things, talks given by Provost Timothy Austin, President Charles Dougherty, and two student leaders, Paul Miller and Jenna Pelly.

In my line of work, most of my interactions with students occur when they break the rules, or when they have a complaint or an emergency. This event is always a nice chance to see the flip side.

Cheers,

Mike
