The month of October seems to confirm the rhythm for the year. Curricular and co-curricular activities are well underway. Roommates and classmates are no longer strangers. New faculty and staff begin to understand the campus culture and the local Lithuanian destinations for food shopping and walks in the forest. And Baltic Sea sunsets are earlier and earlier each day.
We are truly grateful for the safe start to the new academic year, our 30th year!
