    One chapter ends, another begins

    Graduates gathered in four sessions for the University's 465th Convocation last month in Harper Quadrangle. The festivities closed with receptions on the Main Quadrangle and the Science Quadrangle. Following the College ceremony on Saturday, June 9, graduate Simon Miller (lower right photo) met with his family under the artwork he created and exhibited on the Main Quad. His work, which incorporated geometric-shaped, cloth canopies and lights, was supported by rope that was tied to the trees on one section of the quad lawn. The faculty speakers for this year's convocation were Martha Nussbaum, the Ernst Freund Distinguished Service Professor of Law & Ethics in the Law School, Philosophy and the Divinity School, who spoke on the topic "Political Animals: Luck, Need and Dignity" at the first three sessions, and Harry Davis, the Roger L. and Rachel M. Goetz Professor in the Graduate School of Business, who spoke on the topic "The Professional and the Amateur" at the fourth session. Sen. Jon Corzine (M.B.A., '73) also addressed graduates at the fourth session for students in the GSB.[convocation] by dan dry
