The turnaround since going coed is astounding. President Sharon Hirsh has brought new energy to the campus, and academic excellence is again the central focus.

I am impressed by the upswing the school has taken in the past two years. The decision to go co-ed has been a big success. The campus is alive with activity, SAT scores are up, new sports programs fill the gym and the playing field, the faculty is committed to the arts and sciences, and the Graduate School attracts the best and the brightest. President Sharon Hirsh, an alum herself with many highly regarded publications and accomplishments under her belt, is a fearless leader with a vision for the School and a devoted faculty and staff to back her up.

I am proud to be an alumna of, donor to, and administrator at Rosemont College. In my over 20 years of personal association with Rosemont, I have been student, alumna, volunteer, and donor. More recently, as an administrator, I have had the privilege of being a part of the College’s growth and the recent development of a transformational Strategic Plan. Now, as a fully co-ed institution with superb graduate and adult education programs, as well as exceptional undergraduate programs, it is enthusiastically poised to meet the needs of the learners of 2011 and beyond.

I have experienced the influence that the Rosemont community has had on my development as a person. My Rosemont experience helped me, and continues to help me, to discover how I can use my strengths to impact my own life and the lives of those around me. This is perhaps Rosemont’s greatest gift --- it is an institution of higher education that is dedicated, in the spirit of the founder of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus, Cornelia Connelly, to the discovery and development of each person’s unique God-given gifts and talents.

This college is a poor imitation of its former self. It is very badly administered, woefully underfinanced, and unable to provide a quality education to anyone. When you have nearly as many majors as you have full time faculty, you know you're in trouble. The transition from a women's college to the current coed college was manipulated by a willful president and board chair who never, despite their protestations to the contrary, seriously considered alternatives. They cannot and should not be trusted by the public.

relation to the administration's attempt to persuade all that coed was the right direction to take. Construction was promised but not funded; new programs, new faculty salaries, new academic standards. All promised, all failed.
