Later today, we’ll gather as a community at the annual Suffolk University holiday party to celebrate our achievements this past year. It’s also a time of celebration for another special group, the prospective fall 2018 undergraduates.

Today we let 2,237 early action applicants know they’ve been accepted to our University. They represent 45 countries and 46 states, with 80 of them related to Suffolk alumni. These students are among our most motivated and highest-achieving applicants, and their acceptance to Suffolk is joyful news for all of us.

Many of you have asked how you can welcome this newest group of Rams. You have a few options. I encourage you to join me in the new year at a Suffolk Showcase for Admitted Students on February 25, April 8, or April 22. You also can congratulate them on social media using #SuffolkSaidYes. Or tune into Facebook Live on Suffolk’s Facebook page today at 2:30 p.m. when we welcome our newest crop of accepted students.

We have so much to celebrate at Suffolk. In fact, this is just the first of many groups of applicants that we will welcome into our University for fall 2018. You can see how we’re communicating with these students on our website for admitted students.

I look forward to seeing you at the party today, and am excited for all that we will accomplish as an institution in 2018.
