SCSU Presidential Inauguration

On October 16th 2018, Dr. Robbyn R. Wacker was sworn in as Saint Cloud States 24th president. She is also making history by becoming the first woman to hold this position at the institute. I had the honor of seeing this historic inauguration in person. It truly was special to be there in person. This was a great and important day for Saint Cloud as it took another positive step forward into the future. And the future does look bright for Saint Cloud. I believe that this inauguration that kicked off the 150th anniversary of our institution is the crown jewel of what should be a historic week. The ceremony itself was very well done. The speakers were all very prestigious and had nothing but gracious words for Dr. Wacker. It was also the first time I had seen that auditorium full in a very long time. Dr. Wacker spoke with poise and intelligence, all great qualities for the president of a college. She was confident that positive changes were coming our way. While I am not familiar with past Saint Cloud State presidents, I am very confident that she will do everything in her power to be one of the best staff members this school has ever seen.

People are excited for this change, and she is unanimously considered a great choice for the position. I hope the university benefits greatly from Dr. Wacker’s wisdom. She truly embodies what this institution is all about. It would be awesome to see the school prosper in these next coming years under her tenure. It would show that the university made the correct choice.

Seeing someone succeed like Dr. Wacker’s is a very rewarding experience. It can really be life changing. This event has inspired me to be the best student and person I can be. It really made me want to go the extra mile in all of my classes and continue putting my best foot forward. Her speech was also about life itself. The challenges that we will face, and obstacles that we will have to go through to succeed in life. You can tell she truly cares for the school and the students in it. Hearing her say that gave me the confidence boost  I need to keep chugging along until the end of the semester.

Going to this event really felt like you were seeing something truly special. The historical value was there, a certain intensity, and an all around good vibe. This was a great way to kick off homecoming week and hopefully this week continues to have unforgettable moments just like Dr. Wacker’s inauguration.
