Message From President Lettiere

The first full “normal” academic year is completed, and it was so good to have our students, faculty and staff back on campus. Slowly but surely, things are getting back to the pre-COVID days. It was great to see the students back in the classrooms, on the courts and fields, and on the stage. I even had an opportunity to sit in on a few classes.

With countless hours in the bleachers, on the sidelines, in the audience and classrooms, I have a newfound appreciation for the level of commitment and effort our Immaculata community puts into creating a fantastic student experience here at IU.

In this issue of the Immaculata Magazine you will find numerous articles about our students’ accomplishments on and off the field, the court and the stage. These articles give you a good look into what we call the IU student experience.

I encourage you to come to campus and see first-hand the achievements of Immaculata’s students. There are many fun, exciting and educational events and programs throughout the year. I hope to see you here on campus in the future!

With summer in full swing, we plan to do what we do best—prepare for a spectacular fall semester and new academic year.

Please take care and be well!
