President’s Message | June 2015

We’re settling into the warmer months here in Forest City, but that doesn’t mean we aren’t keeping busy!

Waldorf’s parent company, CSEG, and the U.S. Army Installation Management Command Survivor Outreach Services (IMCOM) presented the first Living Legacy Scholarship during the Rolling Thunder “Ride for Freedom” motorcycle rally in Washington, D.C. over Memorial Day. I’m honored the recipient, Stephanie Todd, selected Waldorf College to earn her degree in business management.

First responders and military service members put their lives on the line every day and Waldorf recognizes the sacrifices made by the family members of America’s military men and women, and public safety personnel by offering a Hero Behind the Hero scholarship. Applications for this scholarship are now being accepted.

Summer is upon us and campus is quiet, but for many of you life doesn’t slow down during the “lazy days” of summer. You may be balancing work, children, and planning family vacations all while earning your degree! Some people may not consider it a major feat to complete an assignment in the midst of all these things, but we do – and we are so proud of you all for working hard and staying true to your goals of obtaining that college degree.

Our friendly faculty and staff continue to strive for excellence when it comes to your college experience, so don’t be afraid to reach out to a counselor or professor with any questions, comments, or just for a little affirmation and motivation. As one student one student recently commented, “There have been times along the way that I have considered stopping, slacking or just offering less than my best effort. If you haven’t figured it out by now, when I reached those points I simply picked up the phone and created a reason to call [Academic Advisor Debra Waldrop]. I have gained much more than a degree, I have gained an ally and a friend.”

Give us a call, and I think you will be pleasantly surprised with the Waldorf’s genuine care for you not only as a student, but as a person.
