Dear Friends,

And so a new academic year begins! As we welcome the class of 2021 and all of the returning students, we get ready for the buzz of excitement on campus.

Here at the Salesian Center, we will be preparing public events that will join faith and culture together and look forward to seeing our students, campus community and all of YOU at our many public events.

Take a look at our upcoming Ruggiero Lecture, our Reel to Real movie series, and our special event featuring Chuck Chalberg ... just to name a few!

We invite you to stay connected by looking at our 2017-2018 calendar. You can also keep up-to-date by following us on FacebookTwitterYouTubeInstagram
