Virtual Town Hall

Did you get a chance to see the State of the College update from President Mary Lou Retelle during last month's Virtual Town Hall? If not, you're in luck - we recorded it!

For the entire time that Michael Gorman ’15 was a student at Anna Maria College, he would wake up each morning to a text message from his father that began with the number 86,400 – the number of seconds in a day. His dad would always ask him the same thing, which was “what are you going to do to make a difference today?”
The number of U.S. adults who have a master's degree has
doubled to 21 million people since 2000.
