President's Message

Homecoming is an exhilarating time for the campus and the community. One senses a quickening of life and spirit, a climate of appreciation and affection for things past, an expectancy of things to come. We welcome alumni and friends to the campus and to the community of Bluffton in the midst of the beauties of mid-autumn. We are grateful to you for the interest and friendship which is evidenced by your presence. We encourage you to view the addition to Musselman Library, which triples the capacity and adds a host of new services to the library. You are invited to be present for the Open House at Musselman Library on Sunday afternoon from 3:30 to 5:00. We hope that this new library will contribute significcndy to the climate of study and scholarly inquiry on the campus. We invite you to return frequently to the campus to share with us in the quest for excellence and faithfulness in carrying out the mission of the college. To Queen Linda and her court, to Coach Mast and Coach Warren and their men we wish the best of Homecomings. Robert S. Kreider President
