Meet The Dean of Students

Welcome to the College of the Holy Cross!

And congratulations on becoming a member of the Class of 2018.  Your strong academic background, accomplishments, and hard work have earned you a place at one of the most selective colleges in the nation.  We are excited to welcome you to our beautiful campus.

At Holy Cross, questions live at the heart of our liberal arts culture, and our Jesuit tradition. Every big question is an invitation to explore a larger meaning. When we ask, we learn. Here you will have the time, space and support to ask those questions, find your own interests, and pursue ways to apply what you learn.

Holy Cross lives and breathes in the hearts of those who have experienced it, and I am delighted that you will soon become a part of this community — a place where students and faculty learn together; a place where everyone matters.
You will have an opportunity to see this in action at Summer Gateways, the two-day orientation designed to prepare you for the transition to college. You and your parents will meet faculty, administrators, and current students.  You will get to know the campus, have a chance to meet other members of the Class of 2018, and will learn more about the academic, spiritual, and social life on the Hill.

Again, please accept my congratulations!  I look forward to meeting you.

Sincerely,
Jacqueline Peterson
Vice President for Student Affairs, Dean of Students
