Year-round Love Notes from SUU to You
February 14, 2014
Albert Einstein once said, "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough."
Simply put: our students are the heart of our campus, and we're grateful every day for the creativity, enthusiasm and dedication they bring to the Thunderbird community.
A very happy Valentine's Day to you, our students. In lieu of chocolates, we present a small sampling of the may ways we aim to support, entertain and encourage you annually in your pursuit of the SUU experience.
