President Biddy Martin
Convocation Address
September 5, 2011

Good evening and welcome. I have just a few simple messages for you tonight, our faculty, staff and the Class of Irene. The first is this: I am glad to be one of you. 

In my first 10 days in Amherst, I have found the college to be magical. I have had occasion to appreciate its beauty, its friendliness and its intellectual intensity.
