“It is always amazing to watch the transformation in our students during their time at St. Bonaventure. For this generation, change is the norm. History, and the arts, is about helping these young men and women understand their changing world. Students learn to see how things are connected, see deeper meaning, and understand that many of today’s issues have roots in the past. Understanding the past helps prepare them for the future. It’s always rewarding when it clicks and you see a student all of a sudden get it.”
