Our spring semester senior year my roommates and I hosted a brunch every Friday morning. We invited one friend each week with a printed invitation for fun. On our senior week, along with our friend who was an exchange student from Tony’s alma mater in Australia, we thought it would be fun to invite him. We thought there was no way he would accept, so we were delighted when he referred us to his assistant to add it to his schedule. Even more so when he actually showed up at our Woodstock! It’s an awesome story for us to tell and people are always surprised at our President’s willingness to connect. Come to think of it, we really shouldn’t have been that surprised ourselves! Tony always showed the Clarkson community how much he cared. Congratulations on a wonderful career and thank you to all you’ve given to the students!
