President Hosts Picnic To Welcome Students Back To Campus


>>Lawrence Schovanec, President: It’s become an annual tradition, and it’s one of my favorite things. (Schovanec: You’re the first. You get the grand prize.)>>Lawrence Schovanec: To see the students as they walk through the line, all the different places they come from, different countries, to hear what they’re studying. (Student: I come from Chengdu. Schovanec: Oh, you do? I was there this summer.)>>Carol Sumner, Vice President for the Division of Equity, Diversity & Inclusion: These are the kinds of experiences that allow students to know it’s not just about a job. (Schovanec: Where’s your hometown? Student: Houston.)>>Lawrence Schovanec: I’ve never encountered one negative comment yet. (Schovanec: I’m going to eat that one later.) I imagine it’s hard to be too negative when you’re getting free food, but I believe they sincerely love it and that is so reassuring. It really is. (Schovanec: How’d the first few days of class go? Student: Good.)>>Lawrence Schovanec: I don’t know that the students realize how much we want them to be happy and enjoy their experience. Because it matters a lot to us.>>Carol Sumner: This is what makes this place special. We’re here to serve you. That’s our goal.>>Lawrence Schovanec: I got to get back to work!
