Claremont McKenna College

In her remarks to graduates during the College’s 65th Annual Commencement ceremonies on Saturday, President Pamela Gann noted how some 1,400 days have gone by since the Class of 2012 first arrived at CMC. With a smile and a hint of jest in her voice, she described the graduating seniors seated before her as “totally erudite, illustrious, civilized on all occasions, good-humored, witty,” and, sometimes, even possessing a “modicum of humility.” The afternoon ceremony was held beneath a white tent, accompanied by perfect Southern California weather. Featured speaker N.R. Narayana Murthy P’02, who founded Infosys in 1981, complimented the College on the education his daughter Akshata received at CMC. “Because of her preparation here, she is ahead of me in almost everything she does,” Murthy said. “Hardly a week passes that I don’t consult her, to leverage her wisdom and critical thinking on matters important to me.” The ceremony also featured remarks from student-elected speaker Paige Costello, Jeremy Merrill and John-Clark Levin, who delivered the Latin Salutation, and Carol Oliver Hartman ’86, president of the Claremont McKenna College Alumni Association.
