When asked what his most rewarding achievement so far has been, Hatch responded, "we have been radically innovative on behalf of tradition. Meaning we have taken great strides to advance this university while maintaining tradition and our core values."

Enrollment rates for numerous smaller and lesser-known colleges and universities are falling this year, due to a decline in the U S college-age population, years of rising tuition, increasing popularity of Internet courses and a weak job market for recent graduates."
