MSPP Thirty-Third Commencement, 2013

"Today is our very best day. We come to celebrate the achievements of our graduates and the success of your friend, your child, your partner, your mom or your dad who has read thousands of pages of academic material, (sometimes at the dinner table; sometimes while keeping you up late at night), spent hundreds of hours learning as much about themselves as about their professional field, arrived late to more events than they would like to have and slept far fewer hours than a normal person should, in order to acquire the degree that will be confirmed shortly."
