Monday's convocation ceremony marked the beginning of the 2012 academic year and the beginning of a journey for the class of 2012. A bagpipe procession led faculty and administration into the gym, building the energy in the room. “Good morning, the School of Engineering Class of 2016!” said Dean of Student Affairs Anita Farrington. Her greeting was echoed by cheers from incoming and current students alike.
“It’s been said by a friend of mine that talent is the oil of the 21st century,” said President Hultin, during his address. “You are that talent.” Following, he introduced keynote speaker, the School of Engineering alumnus and Yahoo! chairman, Fred Amoroso.
