President Fox's Matriculation Speech
President Fox told the Class of 2016 - and their families - at Matriculation ceremonies held Sunday, August 26, "All of your doubts, fears, or worries can be redirected if you understand how much we care about your happiness and your progress. If you are troubled, uncertain, or discouraged, we can show you the way of your better seeking and a more confident path to take. Students in the classes ahead of you, professors, deans, directors, and coaches all know well the new ocean you are about to explore with an untried compass."
