Taking a cookie break at the Horn Center recently were (l-r) Carlos Alvarez, Steven Tran, Andrea Salas, Luis Jiminez, Elijia Yanit, Aaron Fukuhara, President Jane Close Conoley, Samual Leija and Sean Whitesitt.

On several occasions in December, President Jane Close Conoley visited the Horn Center and the University Library where students were studying. She has often spoken of her commitment to student success.

During her visits, she offered encouragement and cookies to students to demonstrate to them that she truly cares about their success, especially during finals.

The university’s commitment to student success is demonstrated by evidence that in the past five years, the first-time freshman graduation rate has increased by more than 20 percent.
