The President's Post
What a remarkable year this has been! And it certainly went by quickly. In a few days we will be saying congratulations and good-bye to an exceptional group of seniors, and they will be missed. These are individuals who made a positive difference as students, and they will continue to make a difference during the next stage of their lives. I look forward to their accomplishments and am proud to have them represent Ozarks as our alumni. We can all take pride in our influence on their education and our contribution to their personal development.

   This year was a defining year for the University of the Ozarks. The $39.5 million gift from the Walton Family Charitable Support Foundation allows us to address aggressively the challenges and many needs discussed on this campus for a number of years. The quality of life for our students, faculty, and staff is improving and will get even better. Residence hall renovations, new apartment-style living quarters, increased recreational facilities, improved student life programming, additional faculty members, expanded course offerings and a more flexible schedule, better marketing and promotion of the University — these are no longer infeasible items on a wish list of dreams. They are happening.
   What a remarkable year this has been! Thanks for being a part of it.

Rick Niece, Ph.D.
