Back to

The President's Post
  I hope that the transition back to school went smoothly for each of you and that you are now comfortably settled into the new academic year. We are all extremely busy already and, I guess, that is the way it should be. However, let's not get so busy and mono-focused that we miss the exceptional campus events and activities going on around us. There is much to experience and enjoy. The Organizations’ Fair and Picnic a couple of weeks ago highlighted the extracurricular strengths of Ozarks for me. And, it even survived a mini-hurricane and tropical storm!
    I am amazed at all the happenings on our campus and marvel at the number of students, faculty, and staff who are involved. I am always surprised when I hear people say that there is nothing to do here. That simply is not true; there is much to do.
    My request for everyone — faculty, staff, and students — is to get involved with something on campus besides your regular academic and work responsibilities. The opportunity to participate is a major strength of a small campus community. Let’s take advantage of it. As an undergraduate at Ohio State University, my primary act of participation was to try and find a classroom seat before the other 500 students in my class took them all. At Ozarks, I can always find a seat among friends.

Best wishes,

Rick Niece, Ph.D.
