Welcome Day Highlights

Bay Path was abuzz as long-awaited news about the incoming President-elect was announced last week. After several months of anticipation, and an insightful and rigorous search process by the Presidential Search Committee, Sandra Doran, J.D. was announced as Bay Path University's sixth president early Thursday morning. Shortly after the announcement, the President-elect was found making her way through the Springfield, Longmeadow, and East Longmeadow locations, eager to meet students, faculty, and staff. Her day included visiting undergraduate and graduate-level classes, grabbing a plate and joining the students in the lunch line at Blake Dining Commons, and laughing with Bay Path’s mascot Roary before joining the community for a formal welcome hosted by the co-chairs of the Presidential Search Committee. Her day ended with Bay Path’s Board of Trustees. Joined by her husband Steve, she spent the day seamlessly fitting into the culture and community of Bay Path University. Carpe Diem, President-elect Doran!
