“Some of the people with whom you’re sitting today you will never see again and you will probably be glad of that. Some will become your dearest friends until the day you die. You will have made connections here that will live and grow. You will marvel at how your friendships that began on this campus will last and grow over the decades. That may be DePauw’s greatest gift to you: the people.”
–John McWethy in his commencement address to the DePauw University class of 2003.
I’m off to Greencastle for my 5-year Reunion tomorrow. FIVE YEARS. And I’m so excited.
