Congratulations, Class of 2018!
By Shilo Rea
Over Carnegie Mellon University’s 121st Commencement Weekend, the Dietrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences’ Class of 2018 was celebrated through various ceremonies that marked their distinct and extraordinary academic accomplishments.
Dietrich College Dean Richard Scheines handed out university and college honors to 168 students. This was the first class Dean Scheines welcomed as first-year students to graduate.
“Graduating from Carnegie Mellon University is no small feat,” Scheines said, as he urged the students to thank their families and friends for their support.
Across the Dietrich College, 251 undergraduate degrees were conferred, 92 masters degrees were awarded and 25 Ph.D. students were hooded.
“It’s important to have markers in life,” Klahr said. “In order to comprehend life, markers help us slice things up with a beginning, middle and end. Today is the end of one phase and the beginning of another.”
“What you stand for is more important than what you wear,” Skinner said.
