We made it through an uncertain semester, and I would like to extend a special thanks to the many students, staff and faculty who adapted, sacrificed and prioritized our community’s health and the college’s rigorous academic program to ensure that we could complete the fall largely in person. We did it together, and I could not be prouder!

One of the things we all missed this fall was the opportunity to cheer on our athletics teams. About one in five students at Wofford is a Division I student-athlete and celebrating our student-athletes for their classroom excellence, community leadership, and resilience and determination on the playing field is a part of what makes Wofford special. This year marks the 25th anniversary of NCAA Division I athletics at Wofford College. The college rose to the vision and challenges of that move — in funding, facilities, recruitment and competitiveness — all while keeping the emphasis on the student in student-athlete. Read more about the DI era at Wofford in a special feature written by Brent Williamson, our associate athletics director for media relations.

This issue of Wofford Today also includes stories on the impact of campus construction projects, trustee engagement and Wofford alumni who are making their communities better places to live and work. If you know of a graduate who we should feature in Wofford Today, please share. We are always eager to tell the stories of Terriers doing well and doing good. Email your ideas to WoffordToday@wofford.edu.

Thank you for your continued support of Wofford College.

Go Terriers!
