  • Conducting other research, including taking transcripts.

Requirements:

  • Applicants must possess strong research skills.

  1. Gratitude to everyone who has agreed to help organize and participate in Seton Hill’s memorial service.

  2. Thanks so much for thinking of me and thank you for the invite! My family and I are on our way out of town, or I would love to come. I do remember, I was on my way to WCT (as it was called in those days), and word was buzzing around campus of what happened. I remember walking from Lowe to Lynch Auditorium just feeling so helpless but also feeling sad and a bit guilty that I was safe and so many were hurting, unaccounted for and still in danger. It was amazing to see in a time of tragedy how that well known ‘Seton Hill Family’ pulled together and became one and supported not only those effected on campus by it but also how we reached out to so many in need. That aspect of Seton Hill always shines through in times of need…the sense of one-ness and the sense of family.
    Thanks again, Dr. J! 🙂
