Checking in With Dean Forbes -Summer 2019


We just wrapped up the last session of Nature of Life at Itasca, which means the new semester isn’t far off. The end of NOL brings with it the departure of Abby Connover, longtime coordinator of our Nature of Life program both at Itasca and back on campus, as well as leader of the CBS Guilds. Everyone who knows Abby understands what an incredible contribution she has made in this role, and we are grateful for her service to the College.

Checking in With Dean Forbes - May 2019


This time of year is always a little bittersweet. The frenetic activity of April gives way to the quiet focus of finals week, and of course we will soon bid farewell to a class of newly minted graduates. Later this week well over 400 graduating seniors will walk across the stage at 3M Arena to the loud cheers of their peers, family and friends. It’s an inspiring and emotional experience for all. If you want a sense of the emotions evoked by this annual rite of passage, take a moment to watch this year’s commencement video.
