'Now Is Your Moment'
The Denny Bell peals for 526 graduating seniors
May 19, 2013
Although occasional drizzle drove gathered friends, family and graduates to seek shelter under umbrellas and rain ponchos, the 2013 Commencement ceremony went off as planned Sunday, as the Dickinson community came together to celebrate the 526 graduating members of the class of 2013.
At 10 a.m. sharp, in front of Old West on the John Dickinson Campus, President William G. Durden '71 took to the dais to deliver his remarks, marking the final time he will do so as president of the college.
"To the class of 2013: Go forth and engage the world. It lies directly before you. In fact, you already carry it within you," Durden told the graduates. "Although this will be my last commencement as president, I will always be a Dickinsonian and an alumnus of this institution, just like you. I hope you will treasure this distinction as much as I."
