Welcome 2014 Graduate Students

The first day of autumn brought a new chohort of graduate students to the Social Sciences Quad on Tuesday morning for the Division's 2014 Welcome Breakfast. Dean Nirenberg delivered a short address during which he offered context and some wisdom as they begin this transformative period of their lives. He reminded them, "We are known as the teacher of teachers but we are also the leader of leaders."

Breakfast was followed by a march where the students participated in a convocation on the main Quad. Classes begin Friday, September 29th.
