Thank you all for joining together at this great university for a ceremony that combines medieval academic costumes with the sights and sounds of the 21st century.
Today’s event is rooted in a distant past while reaching expectantly for the future. This seems only right, for in universities we examine and learn from the past even as we try to inspire those, inside and outside our walls, who will make and change the future. Today we mark that continuity and the possibilities ahead.
