A Message from the Vice President of Student Affairs
Welcome Wildcats!

I hope that you were able to rest and recharge over the break. As we settle into our new routines, remotely or in person, I am excited to welcome many of our first- and second-year undergraduate students to campus to join their graduate and undergraduate peers. A short time ago, you received a welcome message from President Schapiro. I want to echo the President’s appreciation for your patience and resolve. While this is certainly an academic year like no other, I am energized by our return to on-campus living, and look forward to connecting virtually and in person when it is safe to do so.

As you begin this quarter, I want you to know that we at Northwestern believe in you and want you to succeed. Many resources are available to you, either remotely or in some cases in person, and we remind you of these resources often so they are top-of-mind when you need them.
