Posted September 4th, 2014 at 2:12 pm.

The 2014-15 academic year officially began Tuesday with the first day of classes and the fall Convocation ceremony.

Interim Provost Mary Osirim opened up the ceremony and was followed by Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research Dean Darlyne Bailey. Professor of Mathematics Helen Grundman addressed the gathered students on behalf of the faculty and Esteniolla Maitre ’15 and Ph.D. candidate Emily Moore gave the student remarks. It was then Interim Dean of the College Judy Balthazar’s turn to address the crowd and to introduce Bryn Mawr President Kim Cassidy, who talked about the power of positive thinking and finding joy in the everyday and closed the ceremony to riotous applause with the news that Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor will be on campus in April to receive the 2015 Katharine Hepburn Medal.
