About dp’s dailies
Dr. Petty, otherwise known as DP, has been sending out “the dailies” since 1998. The dailies are an informal communication tool as an outreach to students Monday-Friday. Each day Cissy selects a quote, poem, prayer or something that someone has sent her to share with others. While students can opt to cancel their subscription, many find it is a quick way to communicate with the Vice President for Student Affairs. Dr. Petty answers all e-mails within a very short time span…sometimes within a minute and never longer than eight hours!
