A Word from Vice President Canney
Dear Parents, Guardians and Friends,
Rev. Dennis Dease is completing his 22 year tenure as president of the university at the end of this month. We are grateful for his many contributions and dedicated leadership. The students held a beautiful celebration in his honor on the Monahan Plaza in May.
President-elect Julie Sullivan is on her way to Minnesota from the University of San Diego. We look forward to seeing her in July. Stay tuned, as we roll out events for you to join us as we welcome her!
We are greeting our new class of 2017 in July during Orientation and Registration. We are certainly looking forward to seeing your students when they return for another academic year. Be sure to mark your calendar for Family Weekend, September 27-29, 2013. Preparations for a grand series of events is underway.
Have a wonderful summer!

Your student can make the most of the summer months while away from St. Thomas. The time away from school provides an opportunity to explore major fields, research career options, arrange meetings to interview or shadow professionals in the workplace and develop experience through employment or volunteering. As students progress through their years at St. Thomas, it is important that they begin to build a resume and establish a network to aide them in their readiness for an internship and job upon graduation. Encourage your student to move their career direction to the next level. Ideas for resources and services available can be found on the Career Development Center website. Appointments and pop-in hours are available throughout the summer by calling (651)962-6761.
If your student is seeking part-time or full-time employment or internship opportunities remind them to use Tommie Careers, the employment postings for UST students and alumni. They can log on with their UST student account information.
If your student's plan is to study abroad in fall 2013 we encourage them to make full use of services over the summer months.

Your student is going to be home more for the summer! It can be a wonderful, yet challenging time for families. The transition of another adult in the household for three months of 'togetherness' requires communication on all sides. Here are some tips:
Enjoy your time together!
