From: Acting President Geraldine Jones

Yesterday was Valentine’s Day, and instead of a dozen roses, I’d like to share 12 things I love about Cal U:

  1. Students who wave or say hello as I’m walking across the Quad.
  2. Faculty members who are passionate about their subject — and inspire their students to feel the same way.
  3. The clock tower chime. No matter where you are on campus, you always know what time it is.
  4. Staff members who keep things running smoothly behind the scenes … and make it look easy.
  5. Chicken noodle soup day at the Sycamore Bistro!
  6. Parents who proudly wear Cal U gear because they feel like part of our “family.”
  7. The excitement in the stands when our athletic teams put points on the scoreboard. Go, Vulcans!
  8. Hands in the air at Student Convocation. Yes, I’ll take questions!
  9. Alumni sharing their Cal U memories with me.
  10. Amazing student performances. In music, theater, dance, athletics, and more, our students have talent to spare. 
  11. Our school colors. Who doesn't look good in red and black!
  12. Commencement. Hands down, it’s the most exciting day of the academic year, and I’m so proud of our students and their academic achievements!

After 40 years at Cal U, my list of “roses” could go on and on. I hope every member of our campus community has found something special to love at Cal U.

With warmest wishes,
Signature of Acting President Geraldine Jones.
