The first session went very well (it was held at the Culture Center in Henrico). Dr. Rao is a very friendly and approachable president. I firmly believe that he will take us to the next level. He has set at least two priorities: (1) create more scholarships so we can be more competitive with other universities and better serve our students, and (2) increase the number of faculty in order to reduce class size. Pretty lofty, but achievable, goals!
