On Wednesday, Oct. 3, Sir Rodney Williams, Governor General of Antigua and Barbuda, visited St. Mary’s College and connected with students, faculty, and staff. The purpose of the visit was to initiate a partnership with the College to provide cultural exchange, including student internships and other opportunities for collaboration. During the visit, the Governor General gave a presentation on Antigua, Barbuda, the Government House Restoration Initiative, and charitable work led by his wife, Lady Sandra Williams, also in attendance. His Excellency was accompanied by his son, Brent Scotland, along with Maryland Secretary of State John Wobensmith and Barbara Paca, cultural envoy to the Ministry of Culture in Antigua and Barbuda.
Welcome to St. Mary’s College of Maryland.
St. Mary’s, an institution more than 175 years in the making, is a public honors college steeped in the tradition of the liberal arts. There are only two such institutions in the country and we are the ‘senior statesman.’
Here individuals have a strong sense of their history, an understanding of their mission, and an eye toward the future. It is an institution where committed leadership, creativity, innovation, collaboration, and integrity are expected of and appreciated by everyone in the community.
I invite you to become familiar with St. Mary’s—the people, the beautiful history-rich location and unique educational opportunities. You will learn much by exploring our website, but I also welcome you to campus for a visit, where you can meet directly with our excellent faculty and staff, tour our facilities and really get to know this place so many of us find to be utopia on the banks of the St. Mary’s River.
