As hard as it is to believe, 2016 is over. The past 365 days here at Florida National University (FNU) were highlighted by growth, success and the constant movement of our community. But now that it’s over, we can humbly, yet proudly look back and declare that this was our most fruitful year to date. Our blossoming Athletics department had us thrilled to the edge of our seats with the successes of our Volleyball, Soccer and Basketball teams, dominating the USCAA. Academically, we introduced new programs, accreditations and watched our graduating classes grow exponentially in size. The student success stories seemed to be never-ending. In the community, events were held that rattled social issues at their core, such Human Trafficking and Domestic Violence, as well as charitable efforts that gave back to those less fortunate. Simply put, 2016 treated Conquistador Nation well.
But there is not much time to reflect on what has passed, rather continue to build upon what is coming. There are a lot of exciting things in the works for 2017 at FNU, highlighted by the much-anticipated completion of the Dr. Jose Regueiro Classroom Building.
Our commitment to excellence and service will continue to be at the forefront of all our endeavors.
We wish all of our students, faculty, staff and supporters a very happy new year, filled with health, success and happiness.
Excited, anxious and driven, we welcome 2017.
