National Visits

President Sullivan will be visiting cities across the country in an effort to meet as many St. Thomas alumni, friends and prospective students as possible. As she described in her inauguration speech, Sullivan feels it is time to "let our light shine more broadly into the world."

Locations and dates are updated regularly; watch the "appearances" column on this page or visit the Alumni Association site for a full list and registration information.

You can also follow the visits (and participate) on social media on the institutional Facebook and Twitter feeds through the use of the #ustpresident hashtag.
