Making New Old Friends

May 19, 2010

Good morning, Old Guard! This was the greeting of the stately gentleman, dressed in jacket and tie, to his assembled colleagues on May 4. Two hundred men responded with a hearty Good morning!

It is not often that I am asked to speak to an all-male assembly. Addressing the Old Guard, a group of retired business and professional men living in the Greater Hartford area, was an opportunity not to be missed. With most of those present reporting that they knew a Saint Joseph College graduate, this was a chance to update a large number of community members about our newest initiatives, e.g., our School of Pharmacy, Autism Spectrum Initiative, and our graduate certificate in Applied Behavior Analysis. I spoke about our enrollment growth, as well as our co-educational graduate programs in health sciences, education, and management. They were an attentive and thoughtful audience, and it was a pleasure to spend some time with them.
