President Higdon tells graduates they are graduating at a pivotal time in U.S. history – indeed, in the history of the world. In a global economic upheaval, traditional companies and organizations seek to redefine themselves and the work they do. Increasingly, they will look to this generation, and specifically to liberal arts graduates, for answers whose comprehensive education has given them the qualities to succeed in the global arena. They are graduating at an important point in Connecticut College’s history, with a Centennial Celebration ahead that will involve them and all the College community, honoring the College’s legacy of excellence and looking ahead to all of the possibilities the future holds.
