President's Message

Sue and I had a fantastic Homecoming Weekend, and we hope you did, as well. It was great to see so many alumni on campus, reliving memories of their West Chester days and checking out what’s new, such as the progress we’re making in constructing the Sciences and Engineering Center and the Commons.

If we didn’t get a chance to connect, and you have something you’d like to share, please email me at president@wcupa.edu.

Rams Up!

Chris Fiorentino, Ph.D.

President, West Chester University
