Thank you, Sonya, and good morning, ladies and gentlemen. As is our custom, I'd like to begin this morning with a brief overview of both our company and our business model for any listeners who are new to Strayer. I'll then ask Mark to report on our second quarter financial results and ask Karl to comment on our second quarter operational results, including our enrollment statistics for the summer academic term. Finally, I'd like to provide an update on our growth strategy, our business model and our earnings outlook for the third quarter of 2012.
