Best Wishes to the Class of 2008

On Saturday I had the honor of wishing nearly a hundred English majors CONGRATULATIONS with a handshake and a Columbian College medal (after studying at GW for four years, our students really do deserve a medal).

I was delighted to meet so many parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, significant others, friends and hangers-on at our departmental reception. I declared during my short valedictory speech that “Commencement” means, literally, “a beginning” — and I sincerely hope that our graduates will stay in touch and remain connected to our department.

On behalf of the entire faculty of the English Department, we wish you all the best, class of 2008, and we miss you already.
