  5. A holiday message from President Keshen

On November 30, students, faculty, and staff gathered in the Ad-Hum pit for an early holiday celebration with food, fun, and festivities for all. The two hour come-and-go featured the U of R Chamber Singers performing traditional holiday carols. All those in attendance were encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item or cash donation to support URSU’s Food Security Program for students in need. Approximately 350 kilograms of food was donated.

As we head into a new year we will continue to look for opportunities to support, not only our students, but also our faculty, staff, alumni and donor communities. — Dr. Jeff Keshen, U of R President and Vice Chancellor.
