Our office will be closed on Tuesday, July 4
in observance of Independence Day.
This week, we are not sharing student stories, but a piece of the American story, our Declaration of Independence. Whether you were born in the United States or abroad, the significance of a people gathering together to fight for their freedom, likely resonates with you. Many of you will take HIS101 – American and Social History I, POS101 – American Politics, or a similar themed course in the Fall, and will examine the ideas in this document – this document that continues to shape, frame, and challenge our identity and our policies. We hope that you will take the time to read it and share what comes to mind as you think about your freedom, your upcoming semester at UAlbany, and the possibilities for your future.
