A Message from President Gerard J. Rooney

April 20, 2020

Congratulations on your acceptance to St. John Fisher College! On behalf of all members of our campus community, I would like to thank you for your interest in Fisher, commend you on your academic success to this point, and offer heartfelt congratulations on completing your high school studies. Well done.

Dr. Gerard J. Rooney

Like you, our students are completing their coursework in an online learning environment. Like you, our senior class has had to deal with the disappointment of not being able to conclude their academic careers together on campus. Finally, like you, I admire our senior class and have been inspired by the personal initiative and resilience they have shown and by their commitment to achievement in this new learning environment.

In these uncertain times, some things remain clear. At Fisher, we believe in a personalized approach to learning where you will benefit from valuable relationships with your professors, lifelong friendships with your peers, opportunities to engage in activities both on- and off-campus, and immersive professional experiences.

Through this time, our campus community has proven time and again that we are committed to student success. We have great people, outstanding programs, and an exceptional first-year program that is designed with you in mind. Our goal is to help you to successfully transition to college, and support you throughout your Fisher experience.

You have my best wishes as you earn your high school diploma. Thank you for your interest in Fisher. I look forward to meeting you the next time you are on campus. If I can be of any assistance to you in your selection process, please know that my door is always open to you.

Kind regards,

Gerard J. Rooney, Ph.D.
