AMHERST, Mass.—Under blue summer skies, the *440 members of Amherst College’s Class of 2012 converged on campus Sunday, Aug. 24, to begin the first semester of their college careers at their new alma mater. The first-years—who range from ceramicists to champion debaters to Irish folk harpists—represent an extraordinary array of beliefs, ambitions, passions, backgrounds and talents, according to Dean of Admission and Financial Aid Tom Parker.
