Alumna Profile: Meg Foreman '84


Meg Foreman '84 says that without Visitation, she would not have felt as confident when she headed off to West Point after graduation.


And today, she's finding that the wise words of St. Francis de Sales - to "be who you are and be that well" - are guiding her as she continues to discern her next steps following her retirement from the Army a few years back.


Meg recently visited campus with her service dog, Mickey, to bring a little cheer on the last day of exams for students.
