Students, faculty, and staff donned t-shirts in a rainbow of colors to kick off the College’s first LGBTQ Equality Rally on May 1. The event, held on the Quad, featured performances, readings, and an open mic.
The 178th Commencement was held behind Pardee Hall for the first time in 50 years. The site’s grandeur was restored by renovations that included the removal of roads from the Quad. The ceremony was held at the Pardee site until the late 1960s, when it was moved to March Plaza, in front of Skillman Library. The College granted 589 degrees to 566 graduates and honorary doctorates to five distinguished leaders, including speaker Anne-Marie Slaughter and President Daniel H. Weiss.
