Winter 2014 Message from President Helen Drinan

(December 5, 2014) — I cannot believe another year has gone by and the fall semester is quickly coming to a close. For many of us, December is a time for reflection and an opportunity to plan for the future. Every year, I have much to reflect on both personally and professionally, and today I would like to share with you some of the things for which I am grateful. 

I am grateful for the opportunity to interact with our students every day. They are such bright, hardworking, and dedicated women who are just at the start of their journey. The education they receive at Simmons will provide them with all the tools they need for an incredibly bright future. Read more.
