A New Class

Daniel Hastings, Dean for Undergraduate Education

Once again we are admitting a new class. I am always amazed at the quality and energy of the students. They are what attract the excellent faculty here. We have a virtuous cycle where high quality students attract high quality faculty who attract high quality students. Every year at this time I have parents ask me if their student should come here or go to Harvard, Princeton, Stanford or Yale. My answer is the same every year. They should go where they feel they will fit the best. We want students to fit best here. At those other places they will get a great education and if the fit is better there then they should go there.

I am proud of what we all do to offer a great education to our students who help make this (along with all of us) a wonderful place to be.
