SmartStart welcomes the Class of 2021

Each August, my heart beats a little faster at the thought of welcoming new students back to Malone University’s campus. It is one of my very favorite moments of the year.

As I meet each of you, I treasure my privilege to get to show you the ropes of University life, and I begin praying for your success. I decided to create this blog to allow for a space for you to ask questions of your student mentors, and for them to respond.

Various student mentors will be posting topics to this board, and you will be able to learn more about them by viewing the “pages” section. Please don’t be shy in asking your questions, though we do ask you to be respectful at all times.

As we wait for the semester to begin, I invite you to explore the pages of this site.
