Message to Graduating Students On this happy occasion I hope you will begin the lifelong habit of thinking back on your New College experience and on all the ways New College has and will continue to shape your life. As I often tell incoming students and their families: all small colleges claim to be special, but New College really is. We know this in large part because of the impact New College has on the life odysseys of our graduates, who feel such a special connection to this place. I hope as well that you will occasionally reflect on the important lessons embedded in our ideal of a strong liberal arts education. Only a few of you will turn your specific area of concentration into your actual life's work. Most of you will instead benefit in indirect ways from the power of your liberal arts education, which begins with the ability to think critically, to communicate successfully, and to confront new and complex ideas and viewpoints with openness and self-confidence. As we reflect on such matters, we confront the mysterious overlap between education and character formation-the giddying possibility that your New College education has actually made you a better person. But, in the end, who knows. I do know one thing, however, which is that New College has been enriched by your presence here, however many times you may have exasperated a professor, argued with a peer, or annoyed the entire campus with your choice of music. New College lives and breathes through its students, and it depends as well on the trust and confidence of your parents and other family members. So I thank you and your families for all you have brought to this campus, just as I share with you your pride on achieving your New College degree. Mike Michalson President
