New Year, New Look, New Students, New Programs and a Renewed Sense of Pride

Dear Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences family,
First and foremost, welcome back to a new academic year! As always, let me start by thanking our new students, their parents, their children and their significant others for entrusting Saint Luke’s College of Health Sciences with your education. I hope this 2018-2019 brings much joy to all of us.
During the last couple of months, many good things have been happening at our institution. First, let me call your attention to the look and feel of our College building.

Camp MITIOG gives BSN students the opportunity of a lifetime
