Community Support and Homecoming Weekend

We had a great event this weekend, combining with our women’s team to host our 2nd annual Co-Am. Our players had the opportunity to play doubles with community members who donated to the program. Everyone had a lot of fun and got to meet others who share their interest in tennis. A huge thank you to the large number of Conservatory of Music faculty who participated.

I want to invite our alums to come back to campus for our athletic homecoming weekend. It will take place October 9-11 and we get to host the kickoff event on Friday, October 9th at our last practice of the fall. You can see a list of events, register, and see who else is coming back at the official website. We’d love to see you come and be a part of this event and all the events over the weekend. If you are going to be here for the weekend please let me know so I can plan for all of you.

Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.
