A message from Peter Stoicheff, President.


As we head into the holiday season, I want to take a moment to wish our family of 147,000 alumni happy holidays and all the best in 2016. I know 2016 is going to be a great year for our university as we continue to take our well-earned place among the best.

I look forward to opportunities to meet with our alumni in the new year, and hope you will watch beyond the bowl for more information on the 2016 president’s tour.

Wishing you a happy and healthy holiday season spent with your loved ones.

Peter Stoicheff, President

  1. Merry Christmas Peter and congrats once again , great to see you move from a soccer coaching, guitar playing English professor, to Dean, President and.. . even owner of my aunt’s house on University Dr.

    You do get around amigo, All the best in 2016. :)

  2. As a graduate of the College of Nursing, I welcome the annual message from the University of Saskatchewan.

    However, I am disappointed that he too has fallen into the trap of avoiding any mention of Christmas for fear of offending someone.. In my experience, those of other religions are not embarrassed or insulted by the mention of Christmas in a country where people who call themselves Christians are still in majority. In fact, they are pleased that we would share our joy with them and include them in our greeting.

    I have been questioned by those of other faiths why we don’t openly celebrate ours, because they feel that we are trying to exclude them from what we believe. Unfortunately I do not have an answer for them.

    They do not celebrate their religious beliefs in a closet but openly so others can witness their beliefs and share the joy of their celebration. They rejoice that they can do this in a country that values religious freedom.

    It seems that Christians are afraid to say Merry Christmas, which is a greeting that could include believers and non believers alike. It amazes me that someone has even created a celluloid button that reads “Yes, You May Wish Me a Merry Christmas”.

    So I say to you Peter Stoicheff “May you and your loved ones have a blessed Christmas as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ”.

    Merry Christmas One and All,

    Miriam
