    Message from President Roger Casey

    I remind everyone that a college is not a place, it’s not buildings, it’s not curriculum. A college is people. And you are those people. You are those people no matter where you are. “You are McDaniel College.” WE ARE MCDANIEL. And no virus will ever diminish The Hill. We will Climb Higher. We will See Farther.
