The Epistle

Each holiday season, for as long as I can remember, I have taken occasion to write a shared letter to our closest family friends: The Wilson Holiday Epistle. It is an update on what happened over the year, the triumphs and challenges, pictures and stories, which made life for me, along with my son, Hunter, memorable over that time. Every year, I end the letter with a personal goal for the upcoming year.

In this edition of the newsletter and similar to our epistle, I am relating the goal of CONNECTION. As I think about this year and our work across Student Affairs at UGA, I see so many stronger connections happening. With students. With each other. With those in our campus and local communities. When we are connected, we can have a transformative impact on the learning environment at UGA—and in the lives of our amazing students.

As we embark on this holiday season, let us strive to be present and truly connect. Always remember, as Benjamin Disraeli said, “The greatest good you can do for another is not just share your riches, but to reveal to him his own.”

Be well and enjoy the season!
