We asked for your #strosepets photos in last month’s newsletter, and as you can see from this video slideshow, you came through.
Laura Antoinette Flynn, ’14, G’16, submitted a great series of photos of her two dogs – Skyler and Rory. We’re sending her a Saint Rose blanket so they can lounge together in style.
Now we are asking for something also near and dear: Your Saint Rose memories. Look for us on Facebook and share a favorite Saint Rose memory (with a photo if you have it) under our #strosememories post or tweet us using the hashtag #strosememories. Our favorite submission wins a Saint Rose T-shirt.
On May 13, more than 1,700 degrees and certificates were granted to more than 1,500 students at our 94th annual Commencement. The degree recipients represent 18 states and 22 countries and were celebrated by a crowd of about 6,000 at the ceremony at the Times Union Center. Selfies were taken. Caps were decorated. Family members cried.
We are pretty proud of their accomplishments, too, and we want you to know more about some of these graduates. Read about and watch mini-documentaries on the newest batch of alumni here.
Doesn’t everyone love new? New babies. New cars. A new ideas. We also love new, especially when we’re talking about new programs.
Recently, we’ve launched three new programs at the College: a psychology/MBA dual degree, a psychology/counseling dual degree, and a Master of Science in Social Work. We’re excited to offer students new opportunities to advance their education, especially in these in-demand fields.
The College of Saint Rose has received gifts totaling almost $4 million that will support student learning. That’s almost $4 million in a four-month period.
One gift will be used to establish an endowed scholarship for students studying in the School of Mathematics and Sciences. A second gift will endow a scholarship for students studying elementary education in the Thelma P. Lally School of Education. And a third gift can be used at the College’s discretion.
