Dr. Jessica Pikul

“What’s the point? Why do I have to take this class for my health care career?” Students often ask these questions about their prerequisite classes.

Message from President Brown about the Orlando Attack

June 13, 2016

Dear Campus,

Our community, like so many others around the nation and world, is heartbroken and horrified as we struggle to comprehend yesterday’s vicious and senseless attack in Orlando. The attack, the deadliest mass shooting on American soil, claimed the lives of 49 people and left dozens injured. The victims were sons and daughters, brothers and sisters, friends and coworkers, enjoying a night of dancing and fun. Our hearts are with their friends and family, as well as with all the injured.
