Dear Students, Faculty, Staff, Parents, Alumni, Colleagues and Friends,
The spring and summer were a time of transition and excitement at Binghamton, as activity picked up, we gladly said goodbye to a harsh winter and then wished the best to our more than 3,000 excited students who attended Commencement ceremonies, marking the culmination of their academic journey at Binghamton and the start of new careers and adventures.
Binghamton University has also moved forward on a number of fronts, including our Road Map, research initiatives and enhancements to our campus. And we're especially proud that our faculty, students and student-athletes have received national recognition.
It's been an exciting year so far, but there is still much to look forward to as we break ground on our $70 million Smart Energy Research and Design Facility; open our new Admissions Center in the former Dickinson Dining Hall that will house Undergraduate Admissions, Student Accounts, and Financial Aid and Student Records; officially open our new Center of Excellence Building; launch our Freshman Research Immersion program; welcome our new faculty and students; and, well, you get the idea!
Thank you all for making 2014 a great year so far. I look forward to continued progress and an exciting fall!
P.S. Check out this brief video for a quick review of highlights from summer 2014, and a welcome to join me for an exciting year ahead!
