Welcome from the Dean

 |  Fall 2017


To all of our new and returning graduate students, welcome to the 2017-2018 academic year!  I hope you enjoy the fall issue of the Graduate School Newsletter.  In this issue, you will find stories about notable alums, exciting new programs (including our new cybersecurity degree), and a number of updates on new opportunities/events geared toward our graduate students.

As always, you and your success are top priority here at The Graduate School, which begins with the communication that we disseminate weekly via social media and email, in addition to the newsletter’s comprehensive collection of events (planned through December).  If you have not yet done so, be sure to follow my #30HoodTips on Twitter for ideas that will ensure your success here at the College.  If you have not yet found the Graduate School on social media (links below), it’s not too late to start!  Be sure to friend/follow us soon to receive a variety of important updates and special opportunities both on- and off-campus.

In closing, I hope that your summer was restful (at least some of the time) and that your fall semester is off to a great start.¬† Please do not hesitate to let my staff or me know how we can improve your time here at Hood.¬† Thank you for choosing Hood College‚ÄĒyour talent and creativity enriches our community!

Best wishes,





April M. Boulton, Ph.D.

Dean of the Graduate School
