St. Thomas has identified 14 potential projects, including two new academic buildings, more housing and more parking, in a new 10-year, $300 million master plan unveiled this week for the St. Paul campus.
A dramatically changing world makes it imperative that St. Thomas continue to anticipate and adapt to rapidly expanding industries in preparing students for the future, President Julie Sullivan said Tuesday in her annual academic convocation address.
There are 1,217 freshmen living on campus this year and on Sept. 2 most of them moved in. St. Thomas staff photographer Mark Brown asked a small sample of these students about the most important thing they brought with them.
Please remember in your prayers Al Hofstede, an alumnus who became the youngest mayor in Minneapolis history, was a St. Thomas trustee and served as the university’s lobbyist in Minneapolis for three decades.
