A return to campus life

It is hard to believe that this will be my eighth September as the Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences. Wasn’t it just yesterday that I wrote my first blog! There are a number of traditions and annual events that fall during this month, but my favourite is welcoming of new students and faculty to our campus. There’s a palpable buzz at this time of year for all of us at the Queen’s campus, or for that matter, all around Kingston. I love it.
