WELCOME HOME! My name is Gabrielle D’Angelo. I am a senior and I will be one of your Resident Advisors and First Year Experience Mentors.
I welcomed you home because LIM will be your new home for the entire time you are a student here. Coming to a new place alone and starting a new chapter in your life can be scary but you are not ALONE, you are now a part of a new family.
Here at LIM you are about to embark on new experiences that will be both challenging and amazing. Through those experiences we will be here to guide you, help you, and celebrate your accomplishments. I want to tell you that you made the right choice picking LIM for your college education because it was the best decision I have ever made. These past three years have been a total joy to me and I know that my final year will be just as amazing.
At orientation you received a silver pin. On this pin is LIM College’s academic seal. Since 1939 LIM has been dedicated to helping you and students like you succeed and reach the goals you have set out for yourself. This pin symbolizes a legacy that you are now a part of because you are now a part of the LIM family.
This pin also symbolizes your own commitment to applying yourself to work as hard as you can to achieve your goals.
I am asking you to keep this pin in a safe place so when the time comes for you to proudly walk across the stage and receive your diploma on graduation day you will wear this pin close to your heart because HOME is where the heart is and even after graduation LIM will always be a home to you.
I would like to wish you lots of luck for the coming year, and I look forward to getting to know you. Get ready for the experience of a lifetime!
