The President's Post

The next two weekends will be special ones at the University of the Ozarks. Alumni Week- end 2001 will be celebrated April 20-22, and the spring Board of Trustees’ meeting will be conducted on April 26-28. Alumni Weekend is shaping up to be one of the best ever, and a wide variety of activities are planned. Last year more than 550 people attended Alumni Weekend, and I think we will have even more attendees this year. The theme is, “Traditions of Excellence: A Celebration of the Past, Present, and Future,” and special reunions for Athletics and graduates of the Communications Program are planned as well as a series of other exciting activities. Many of the events are open to all members of the campus community, and I welcome you to join us in the fun. One highlight of the weekend will be a tribute and farewell to Hurie Hall. This formal ceremony and last tour of the building is scheduled for Saturday, April 21, at 2:30 p.m. Come share in the memories!
   I am always enthused to have Board of Trustee members on campus and pleased that they have the opportunity to interact with all of you. I know that Board members enjoy their discussions with staff and students, and they appreciate your suggestions and insights. You help them to make better, more informed decisions, and we are an improved campus because of your involvement. A special feature of this Board meeting will be the formal dedication of Mabee Residence Hall, our third new residence building. The dedication is scheduled for Friday, April 27, at 4:30 p.m. I invite you to attend.
   I am proud of this campus and always anxious to share it with alumni, Board of Trustee members, and other visitors. Most of all I am proud of you, the campus community, for maintaining Ozarks’ “Tradition of Excellence.” This campus really is something special.
