    A Warhawk winter wonderland

    The season's first snowstorm is a story about the Warhawk family — the volunteers like those pictured above who worked to clear Perkins Stadium of ice and snow, the passionate fans who refused to let the wintry weather freeze their purple pride, the campus's tradition of excellence as our student-athletes skillfully downed their opponent in the opening round of the national championship playoffs — captured beautifully by university photographers.

In addition, she served as a panelist for NAFSA’s recent live, online Collegial Conversation “Access for All – Physical Mobility in Study Abroad.”
