Dear DePauw,

As a great place to learn, live, and work, we have a one-of-a-kind opportunity this weekend to put our best foot forward. Nationally televised events are a rare and powerful opportunity to showcase DePauw and our long history and strong values.

I have no doubt our team, coaches and staff will make us proud this weekend. They have worked hard for months, like all our athletic teams do, to bring their “A game” to the field, track, court, pool or course.

I look forward to doing the same with you. Let’s cheer our team on; let’s welcome back the thousands of alumni who will join us in Greencastle and at watch parties around the country; let’s celebrate with friends old and new, and let us do all of this while being safe and responsible. America is watching. Let them see us as the class acts we are, both on the field and off.

How fortunate are we to be a part of a 124-year tradition? Let’s make this the best Monon game and weekend in that storied history. I look forward to celebrating with you and keeping the Bell where it belongs.

Be loud. Be Proud. Be safe. We are putting our name on this weekend.

Go Tigers.

President McCoy
