    So if anyone would like to meet Dr. Rondeau you have 2 more opportunities this coming week of December-once in Westmont and again in Glen Ellyn. She is terrific. I found the posting for these “Town Hall” meetings under Board of Trustees on the COD website. You have a chance to ask questions of her and Chairman Mazzochi.

    Does anyone find it ironic that Brueder
    gave an interview where he said with such pride that he never served in the miltary? Because if he had he would have had to enter in as a general because he wasn’t one to take orders.

    Fast forward to College of DuPage’s newest President, Anne Rondeau, is a retired Navy Vice Admiral!!! Godspeed Admiral Rondeau!
