Message from the President

The Class of 2021 will be prepared

Samhat

In the Class of 2021 are future teachers, attorneys, physicians, entrepreneurs, accountants, scientists, clergy, musicians, interior designers, historians, architects … the list goes on and on. I don’t know where the Class of 2021 will end up in four years, but I’m positive that they will be prepared!

That’s what Wofford College does. It offers students opportunities to prepare for their first (or fifth) job. In the pages of this Wofford Today, you’ll find the stories of graduates who have taken their Wofford foundation and upon it built — or are building — careers in the military. They all say that Wofford’s liberal arts education helped them prepare to serve and lead under often unexpected and demanding circumstances, and for that we are all grateful … but not surprised.

Other features in this issue include stories of how students spent the summer preparing for their futures through internship, research or job experiences. There’s also a section in which you’ll meet a vital team of Wofford staff who maintain and prepare the college’s buildings and grounds so the campus is a rich environment for student success.

Students have come to Wofford for years to prepare for lives of leadership, service and lifelong learning. Thanks to your help, that tradition will continue for generations to come.

Go, Terriers!
