UToledo President - Dr. Sharon L. Gaber

Welcome home, Rockets!

We’re excited to have you here at The University of Toledo as we begin the academic year. This is sure to be a year of exciting new experiences and challenges that will help you grow and thrive. I encourage you to set ambitious goals and remain determined to achieve them — and let us know how we can help along the way!

All of us at UToledo are committed to helping you succeed. Your faculty, academic advisors, success coaches and our teams in Rocket Solution Central and the Division of Student Affairs are ready to assist you, so please reach out.

We’ve been working during the summer to prepare for your arrival. Here are some of the recent updates to set you up for a great semester:

  • We’ve renovated the lower level of Stranahan Hall to create a welcoming, contemporary space, in addition to three new active learning centers in Snyder Memorial with high-tech features designed for better collaboration.
  • New counselors will be joining the UToledo Counseling Center — one on Health Science Campus and an additional counselor on Main Campus.
  • Campus safety continues to be a top priority. We’ve added new vehicles to our Night Watch service for safely getting around campus after hours and UT Alert is now an opt-out program to make sure you get a text message in the event of an emergency. I also encourage you to sign up for the Rave Guardian Mobile Safety app to connect with campus police.
  • We know how much you’ve enjoyed the Lime scooters and Rocket Wheels bike share program, so we’ve added kayaks on the Ottawa River to enjoy our beautiful campus. We’ve also added new equipment at the Rec Center.
  • Grab your friends and cheer on the five-time MAC Conference-winning women’s soccer team for their first game at Paul Hotmer Field on Main Campus this Thursay night, Aug. 29!

I look forward to seeing you at one of the Welcome Weeks events coming up on Main Campus and Health Science Campus to kick off the new year.

Go Rockets!
