New beginnings

pring is a time of new beginnings. Senses awaken as snows melt, flowers blossom, and birds sing. On the SCU campus, excitement is palpable as sunbathers emerge, wisteria delights, and seniors get ready to graduate.

This spring, Santa Clara Magazine will also have a new beginning. With the next edition, you will experience a new design and added pages, which means more of the great content you already enjoy. I’m confident the reimagined layout will soothe your eyes, stimulate your mind, and touch your heart.

As with all new beginnings, priorities change. Just as parkas give way to sweaters, existing features in the magazine will give way to new elements. As a result, one feature you won’t find going forward is this Alumni Association letter.

Whether sharing SCU’s history and traditions, announcing new programs, apprising of important happenings, or highlighting inspiring family members, my goal has always been to inform, entertain, and renew your pride in our alma mater. Thanks to all who responded to my calls to action, contacted me when something touched you, sent a letter to the editor when moved by the topic, and greeted me as a friend at the many alumni and University events where we’ve met over the years. We’ve become friends through this page, and while there’s no doubt you’ll enjoy the revamped publication, I will certainly miss the opportunity to connect with you in print on a quarterly basis.

With new beginnings comes hope. I hope you will stay connected to the Alumni Association through local events, Grand Reunion, the websiteemailFacebookLinkedInTwitter, and Instagram. I hope you will stay connected to Santa Clara University in whatever way inspires you most. I hope you will stay connected to your classmates and fellow Broncos, both personally and professionally. And I hope you and I will stay connected—in any and all ways possible.

It has been and continues to be my privilege to serve you and the entire Santa Clara family.

Go Broncos!
