July 2017 President’s Message

Hello Students and Alumni! I hope you are having a fantastic summer and you are staying cool and relaxed, wherever you may be! I have been thinking a lot lately about the four pillars that our institution was founded upon. Last year when we made the transition from Waldorf College to Waldorf University, we reviewed our values, core mission and vision. From that discussion, there were four words that stood as a testament to the past,...

Are you feeling some late spring fever? I have noticed that I, and many around me, are feeling the effects of spring fever. It seems as days get longer, our attention spans shorten and we look forward to vacations and events later in the year. On some nice spring days it is hard to sit in an office.

February marks the month of love. While Valentine’s Day only represents romantic love to some, love for your family, love for your friends and love for your community are all equally, if not more, important than any date you may be going on. Just this week, I saw an outpouring of love for one of those in our Waldorf family. I took a call from an online student who was deployed in Afghanistan. Staff Sgt. Dibrell is taking his final...
