University Family,


Welcome and welcome back. The 2016-2017 tour is upon us.  May it be our desire to commit individual and collective efforts to taste success on this year's journey.  I hope that our new and renewed vigor gives us what we need at just the right moments, whether it be minimal or monumental. May God's hand direct our paths as we come together on common ground. Let His spirit lead us in varied aspects as we pledge to seek knowledge, grow in faith and participate in acts of service and compassionate care for our neighbors and one another.  May His grace embrace us in His sweet and infinite love.  I encourage us to continually seek the counsel of the I AM in all that university life has to offer.


This year, in Him, we - U KNIGHT.
