Welcome, President Martin!

 It was a reassuring pleasure to get to know you "in-person" through the videotaped comments of your first all-college meeting. Your heart is in the right place, and you are clearly up to the challenge of guiding "the fairest college" into the next decades.

The Search Committee certainly deserves recognition for its hard work, but I wish that 41% of the video forwarded by Amherst had not been devoted to the "preamble" to your clear-headed and encouraging words.
