Day21 countdown begins

Hello Monks!

Hot coffee.  A sunny, warm morning.  It's the start of a new week, but not just any week.

It's hard to believe, but there are just 21 days until classes begin on campus.  It's been a unique and challenging summer for most of us - and for so many reasons, that's likely the understatement of the year.  The summer is indeed flying by.

Saint Joe's has been such a busy place this summer, even more so than usual.  We have a ton of news to share - new staff to introduce, newly renovated (or created) spaces on campus, and programs that we're looking forward to launching this fall.

We know that you, our students, probably won't read a massive email on your first day back to campus - although, as you've seen this summer, I can crank out a lengthy email like it's nobody's business - so we're starting 21 Days to Saint Joe's.  And hey, the Class of 2021 will be graduating/commencing/skipping across our stage (fingers crossed) in 2021, so it's 21 Days seemed fitting.

Anyways, back to the blog.  They'll be short, positive, interesting, and helpful notes that give you an idea of what we've been up to over the past several months.  I'll promise to be quick and to the point.  Check back every day for a new post.

From all of us at the College - it will be great to have you 21 days.

Have a great day.  See you tomorrow.
