Letter from the Dean

Congratulations Arrupe College Class of 2022!

I am very proud to be joining you today as we mark this incredible milestone. Two years ago, at the height of the pandemic, it was hard to imagine from our Zoom screens that we would all be able to gather here and celebrate the incredible accomplishments of the class of 2022. You have had a remarkable journey that introduced you to new ways of thinking; you discovered challenging and exciting ideas in your courses, and made life-long friendships. Guided by Arrupe's outstanding faculty and staff, you learned to navigate new ways of interacting, learning, and living. When we finally left our Zoom screens and returned to Maguire Hall you demonstrated your incredible resilience and care for one another. As a class, you have shown over and over again the true meaning of cura personalis – care of the whole person.

Whether entering the workforce or continuing to complete your bachelor's degree, we celebrate the next chapter in life's journey. As you begin that journey, know that you are always welcome to return to campus and share your stories with us. Hearing about our alumni's impact on the world helps us to prepare the next generation of students. I look forward to hearing from you on your journey and welcoming you back to Arrupe.

Today, my challenge to you is not only to excel in your careers and studies but also, most importantly, to continue to be men and women for others. Your education has given you the tools and moral compass to make a difference and positively transform the lives of individuals, families, and communities through the relationships you build as an Arrupe College alum.

On behalf of the entire Arrupe College, congratulations on this important milestone in your life, and go set the world on fire!
