Farewell to Mary Aquilino
On Tuesday, April 14, the Graduate Studies office said goodbye to Mary Aquilino, who served the University as Assistant to the Vice Provost and Dean of Graduate Studies since 2008, and had previously served with the office of the dean in the School of Nursing.
Mary had helped countless students with their theses, treatises, and dissertations. She had also been the first point of contact with the CUA faculty and staff in all things graduate studies.
We wish the best of luck to Mary as she continues her adventures in the Lone Star State! She will definitely be missed in McMahon 116!
