A Message from President Gerard J. Rooney

February 5, 2020

I hope this issue of Fisher Family News finds you doing well.

Dr. Gerard J. Rooney

Spring at the College is always busy, and this semester will be no exception. This month, nearly 500 students will participate in the Teddi Dance for Love, a 24-hour dance marathon that benefits Camp Good Days and Special Times. It is the longest running student-led tradition at the College and is truly a sight to see. We are also honored to welcome Kevin Richardson, a member of the Exonerated Five, to campus to deliver the lecture, “When They See Us: The Legacy of the Central Park Five.”

As well, Spring Break will see several groups of students travel domestically and internationally to engage in service projects and advance their studies by meeting with professionals in their chosen career fields.

In this issue of Fisher Family News, directors of the Center for Career and Academic Planning (CCAP) share advice on how families can help keep their students focused on both academic and career goals. On Thursday, March 19, CCAP will hold its annual Career Fair, which will feature more than 100 employers ready to hire students for internships and professional opportunities. Consider encouraging your student to prepare a résumé and to visit the fair.

I hope that your student is continuing to grow both personally and academically while they are here with us and that they are enjoying their Fisher experience. Thank you for your continued support of your student and of their time at Fisher. As always, my door is open to them and to you if I can be of assistance.

Best wishes to your family for the remainder of the semester.

Kind regards,

Gerard J. Rooney, Ph.D.
