Dear Members of the USF Community,
Today marks the beginning of the Lunar New Year festival, the most celebratory time of year across Asia and in other communities around the world. To mark the occasion this year — the Year of the Ox — family and friends will adapt many traditional and beloved reunions, feasts, and celebrations to a virtual environment.
Wherever our students, alumni, friends, and other members of our community are celebrating, we hope good wishes for a peaceful and fruitful year ahead will be the centerpiece of this important and festive time.
Please join me in wishing a happy New Year to all who are marking this significant and ancient festival. May the New Year bring you and yours joy, health, and prosperity.
Paul J. Fitzgerald, S.J.
