November 15, 2019 0 By Kody Olson


(gentle music) – To the class of 2023,
in choosing to come to Dickinson College,
I believe you’ve made one of the best decisions of your life. By walking up these historic stone steps and signing the ledger
papers in Memorial Hall, you officially become Dickinsonians. At this pivotal moment in human history, facing unparalleled
challenges, we need students of courage and creativity. And we need places of learning
which foster and encourage that creativity, places which nourish and inspire that courage. Dickinson is just such a place. (gentle music) In our Dickinson community, we welcome all points of view. Learning how to live
together, to communicate with and learn from each other in a community where everyone is valued, where everyone is welcomed, where is everyone is respected,
and everyone is heard. Be strong, be courageous,
be open-minded, be involved. The class of 2023- the 236th class, welcome to Dickinson College. (crowd applauding) (gentle music)
