SENIORS: Some Words of Wisdom from Dean Remy

Dean Remy has some excellent thoughts for us graduating seniors that I think bear repeating on this blog.

Good afternoon,

Strange as it may seem, for those of you who are graduating, it is time to think about the goodbyes that you want to say before you leave Dartmouth.  It’s easy to get lost in your day-to-day deadlines and put off saying goodbye and thank you, but it’s also too easy to let the opportunity slip by completely.  I encourage you to carve out some time to reflect on those people at Dartmouth who have helped shape your experience and then to let them know.

Whether they are the freshman roommate who you haven’t really talked to in two years, a supervisor at your work study job, the nurse who got you through the flu,  the faculty member who pushed you to do better work than you knew possible, or someone who shared an encouraging word on a day that you needed it most, it may be that they don’t know they’ve touched you in a meaningful way.  Even the simplest acknowledgement means a great deal.
