HIGHLIGHTS: On May 20, a day whose weather was as majestic as the Commencement ceremony under the soaring elms on the main quadrangle, 585 students received degrees as hundreds of proud guests looked on. Commencement speaker Anne Fadiman urged members of the Class of 2012 to practice humility as they move into the next phase of their lives. “I ask you to do two contradictory things—honor difference and commonality,” said Fadiman, author of The Spirit Catches You and You Fall Down. “There is a way to do both. Don’t assume that you…stand at the center of the universe. It isn’t true and it never helps.” Read more and see photos from Commencement.
