A letter to the Class of 2020: Professor Raye

Dear Class of 2020 – 

You are a dynamic, fearless and resilient group that copes with adversity and challenges with a “hell ya, bring it on” attitude.  You have demonstrated your ability to face changes, improvements, adjustments, and even a complete disruption of your education with grace and strength.  When we moved from small departments to reorganization with the creation of schools, you nimbly pivoted and adapted to the new structure, ensuring that it did not erode our small class size and close faculty/student relationships.  When we renamed ourselves from a college to a university, you took it in stride, buying new gear and new stickers to show your deep Laser pride.  When archrivals Mount Ida and Newbury College folded, you opened your arms and hearts, welcoming those students and helping them adjust to the Laser community.  And when COVID-19 dismantled your senior spring and our final weeks together, you stood up, came together and refused to go quietly without a fight for what you believed in and wanted as a class.  You are a powerful group with powerful voices.  You are true leaders and role models on our campus and you will be missed.   Continue reading “A letter to the Class of 2020: Professor Raye”
