Fall is such an exciting time on campus!

When students are not busy attending class, they are enjoying all the new programming that Lourdes now has to offer – a new Campus Ministry House, the King James Bible exhibit, the First Year Experience course, the opening of the Center for Science Education and the Environment, and the announcement of the new J session.

In this edition, you can learn about all these items as well as celebrate the accomplishments of our alumni, faculty, staff and students. Learn about the two students who graduated from the Toledo Police Academy, an alumna who is now working as a probation officer for the Lucas County Court of Common Pleas, one who is following in her father's footsteps as a Toledo Firefighter and several alumni who are educating and providing nursing care and guidance in our region.

On behalf of the Lourdes community, I encourage you to review our Coming Events section and join us whenever possible at our academic, student life and athletic events. As the weather begins to get colder, please also plan on joining us at our annual Sharing the Spirit event where we enjoy scrumptious food, sing Christmas carols and officially light the Lourdes University Christmas tree.
