"Dear Readers"

Dear Readers

When we broke for spring break in March, I’m not sure any of us could have predicted just how much our community would be impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

summer 2020 Brock editor quoteOur usually vibrant campus became still and quiet as we shifted to online learning, while plans to conclude our year-long 150th anniversary were put on hold. But our campus community persevered and adapted. We topped last year’s fundraising total during a virtual Bear2Bear Benefit & Bash; we welcomed prospective students to Ursinus during a unique online Admitted Students Experience; we shifted our annual Celebration of Student Achievement (CoSA) to a dynamic digital campus event; and we gave our graduating Class of 2020 a truly memorable tribute on the pages of our website. Most of all, I’m proud of how each of us did our part to ensure the well-being of all our faculty, staff, students and families. The Ursinus community rose to new heights in the face of uncertainty and it’s times like these where I’m proud to be your president. I’m excited to see all of you back on campus again soon.

Sincerely,

BROCK BLOMBERG
President
