“As we come together today, the members of the class of 2025 are preparing to take a leap — actually, not just a single leap, but a series of leaps that will stretch over the next four years. Some of those began yesterday: stepping into Peirce to make new friends, introducing yourself to your orientation group, meeting your academic advisor.
“Later you will start classes, write your first paper, take your first exam. Eventually you will apply for summer experiences, start an internship, perhaps study abroad. Each situation is a new environment, each requiring you to make decisions on how to successfully navigate a new set of challenges.”
