Welcome back everyone — and introducing

August 12, 2022

Faculty, Staff and Students,

Greetings again to all of you. I hope the summer has treated you well, whether that means you have been enjoying time off or continuing your classwork.

As we prepare for a large population of our students to return to our campuses next week, I want to emphasize how excited we are for this moment, to have everyone back and to be able to offer the best education we can provide.

We’re also excited because we are welcoming an extraordinary amount of new faces to our College. Yes, there is a record number of incoming freshmen, but there are also 16 new faculty and staff who will be calling CHS home.

I would like to utilize this space to acknowledge these new employees, and to once again wish them a happy transition into the CHS family.
