Michael Hemesath's official appointment as president of St. John's University begins on July 1, 2012, but he won't be on the campus until July 23, 2012. The delay is in part due to a previous commitment with Carleton College, but also because he will attend a new president seminar at Harvard University after July 4, 2012 before heading to St. John's. St. John's announced Hemesath's appointment April 10. He is a St. John's alumnus and the first lay president the university has had in its 155-year history. Rev.
