Columbian College Celebration

With Hugs and Handshakes, Class of 2017 Look to Road Ahead

Surrounded by family and friends, the Class of 2017 received a celebratory sendoff last month. Dean Ben Vinson urged graduates to follow their passion as they embark on the next phase in their life journey.

"Be the change-makers, the creators, the discoverers, the innovators, the leaders that will help push our society forward. Choose tolerance over narrow-mindedness, inclusiveness over exclusion and purposefulness in everything you do. Embrace your passion, live your dream, be engaged in the community around you and tackle every challenge with the highest of ethical and moral compasses."

Ben Vinson III, Dean of Columbian College of Arts and Sciences
