Incoming freshman were welcomed with some sound advice on how to navigate their Stanford experience.
Drawing inspiration from the life of Peter the Great, who explored the societies of the modern world to the west in his quest to transform medieval Russia into a modern, scientific, European-oriented country, President John Hennessy urged new students Tuesday to investigate new subjects and interests during their time at Stanford.
"We ask that you become an enthusiastic member of this academic community," Hennessy said. "We ask you to take advantage of what Stanford will offer—to have the determination and conviction to make these next years with us a springboard to a life lived with passion and commitment."
Hennessy was one of several speakers who welcomed new students and their families to the Stanford community during at the 123rd Opening Convocation Ceremony, which inaugurates the academic year. The ceremony, held in the Main Quad, also featured Jessica Anderson, a Stanford senior; Richard Shaw, dean of admission and financial aid; and Harry J. Elam Jr., vice provost for undergraduate education. Each speaker encouraged new students to explore the wealth of opportunities and experiences available to them at Stanford.
