Message from the President
Incredible things are happening at Wofford College
Since the spring issue of Wofford Today, our men’s basketball team traveled to Wisconsin to play in the NCAA tournament. Ten of our athletics teams received praise from the NCAA through the annual scoreboard of academic achievement. Two recent graduates – David Moore and Anna Le – received prestigious Fulbright appointments. Work continued on the strategic plan for Wofford’s bright future. Prema and I “officially” became members of the Wofford family following a very special inauguration ceremony and campus and community celebration. Most importantly, 360 of our students became alumni, armed with the education and skills they need to positively impact the world.
I’m pleased that the incredible things happening at Wofford College now will be told on the pages of this refreshed and rebranded Wofford Today magazine. The magazine style used by the college since 2002 has been replaced with what we believe will better tell our story through targeted articles, stunning pictures and streamlined design. This update also is reflected online at wofford.edu/woffordtoday, where you will find enhanced online content and the ability to share stories via social media platforms.
Over its next issues, Wofford Today will continue to chronicle both the world at Wofford and Wofford in the world, and we will have some important stories to tell.
In our fall issue, we will share highlights of the college’s strategic plan. When implemented, the plan promises to reaffirm our institutional mission by expanding and deepening the academic program; enriching community and inclusiveness; making more of our physical campus; and extending the college’s reach beyond our borders.
I am excited to have the opportunity to share in this journey with you, and I look forward to our incredible future.
