Becky - Congratulations! Wow has time passed - seems like only yesterday that we were freshmen students finding our way around campus. Your inauguration brings back memories of some of my happiest years as a student at St. Kate's. Here's to the class of '76! I wish you all the best and great success in your new role! Warm Regards, Mary McGuire Audette '76

Best wishes, President Becky, upon your inauguration as the 11th President of St. Catherine University. May joy be with you on this day and every day during your tenure. Deborah A. Torres
Dear Becky, It has been a pleasure to meet you and to talk with you in the weeks since you joined St. Kate’s. Especially now that I return to St. Kate's as faculty, having graduated years ago when it was St. Mary's Junior college. I welcome you "home" to St. Kate's as well. I graduated with one sister and cousins who were sisters; then several years later, another sister and cousin graduated from St. Mary’s – it has been a “family affair”. I also had the pleasure of serving the St. Kate's Alumni Board, as the Minneapolis representative, which brought the pleasure of actively participating in Sr. Andrea's installation. More importantly, at this time, I want to extend my warmest wishes to you with prayers for many successes as you continue the work of St. Kate's, its staff, faculty and community, as it continues a rich history of recognition as an outstanding college that prepares so many people to carry forward this good work out into the community and beyond. I am excited to have this opportunity to get to know you; and I anticipate having an opportunity to grow this knowledge in my work here and in working with you in the weeks and months ahead. May you have a glorious day of celebration with family, friends, faculty, staff and other delegates and dignitaries on your appointed day of installation/inauguration. As my mother would say to us, "I ask for many blessings for you; stay well and be happy - always - for you matter in this life to many." Congratulations! With warm regards and a "healthy" welcome! Carolyn Valo '77
Taking the time to visit Sister Mary Thompson at Carondelet Village meant a lot to her and touched my heart... that's the kind of leadership I admire... thank you and WELCOME HOME!! Carolyn Puccio, CSJ '65
Congratulations on your new position! May many blessings be yours as you begin this new role. Sr. Christina M. Neumann '03
You are perfect role model for St Kates "lead and influence" tagline. Thank you for your willingness to serve! Ann Erickson '75, MAOL'92
May the Lord bless you, opening your heart to all St. Kate's holds, with strength and wisdom to meet the future needs of the world. Brenda Frie, MAOT'10
Welcome to this august community and I look forward to your vibrant and engaging presence! Michael D. Hurd
Dearest Becky, We are so excited to welcome you home. Your warmth, humility, and graciousness are characteristics I watch keenly as an alum and current faculty. I eagerly anticipate the wonderful changes you are sure to bring. Blessings on your presidency! Emily Witrak Nowak '03
Chuck and I send all blessings and best wishes. Wish we could have been there. Maureen Kelly Neerland '62
What a wonderful reason to attend! How lucky all the students (especially the gals) are to have you heading this great University. They made an excellent choice. Mary Nordlie
President Roloff, I came to St. Kate's as an older student (in my 50s) after working and raising children for more than 20 years. I had been free-lance writing and had no intention of going back to work - I've just always loved learning and wanted more. Not only did I complete my degree here and graduate Summa Cum Laude, but was thunderstruck by the transformative nature of this blessed institution for women and girls. A lifetime feminist, I saw, for the first time, a space for young ladies to become powerful women and people who really can (and are) changing the world for the better. In this auspicious time in which we're about to elect the first woman President of the United States, I cannot help but feel so privileged and honored to be a part of also installing you, our 11th woman president, and breathe new life into this magical place. Congratulations and Thank You! PS. LOVE the Friday emails. Keep 'em comin! Kay Kendall '03, Associate Director of Undergraduate Admissions, College for Women
I am excited to see what you have in store for the future of St. Kate's and am overjoyed to welcome you back to the St. Kate's community. Mary Carson '20
Congratulations, Becky and welcome home! The entire St. Catherine University community is very lucky to have you at the helm. I look forward to seeing your powerful leadership in motion. Be well! Proud of my Alma mater! Alum - 1988/BSW; 1997/MSW; 2017/DSW Adjunct Faculty/School of Social Work Community member/neighbor Mary Tinucci '88
Dear President Roloff, Congrats on being the 11th President at St. Catherine University. I am so excited to have you as the new President at St. Kate's, may the best be with you. Paxoua Vang '20
I am BEYOND excited to have you as our President here at St. Catherine University. I cannot wait to see what great things you do for the St. Kate's community! Best of luck and HAPPY INAUGURATION DAY! Christine McKenna '15
Dear Becky, welcome back to St. Kate's and blessings on you as you embark on your role as president of our beloved St. Catherine! You embody so clearly "all of which woman is capable" and are a wonderful role model for women who wish to lead and influence — in society, in both profit and non-sectors, in volunteerism, in building a better world. You are just the woman we need. Thank you for saying yes! Mary Kaye Medinger '68, CSJ Consociate and Co-Director of Consociate Services

I am so pleased you are our new St. Catherine University President. I was at all the interviews for others, but not yours.

Best of luck to you as you begin your PRESIDENCY at St Catherine University. I hope you enjoy many successful years, not only from a financial perspective, but also gain personal satisfaction as you face the many challenges ahead. I am looking forward to meeting you. Mary Wilson '62

Becky, Congratulations and welcome to the wonderful world of higher education in MN. You will add expertise and a deep understanding of the communities St. Kate's serves. I will attend the installation ceremony, so in the event we don't connect (because there will be many, many people who want to meet you), please know that I'm very excited for you and your family that you will be leading St. Kate's forward for many years to come. Let's schedule a lunch soon! Linda Hanson
Becky, I look forward to your Inauguration on October 11 2016, as President of St. Catherine University.

I remember you as being around alum events and especially as we served on the Alumnae Board of Directors together. I hold you in prayer as you begin you tenure as President of St. Catherine's.
