  • Women, Power, and Perspectives

    Posted June 12, 2014

    A 2014 reunion panel sparked powerful conversations: Four women, representing classes from the 1960s through the 90s, drew a packed audience (and cheers from their respective classmates) bright and early on Saturday morning of reunion weekend.

Wire walking makes a tidy metaphor for graduation, it turns out.
