These words represent our declarations and our actions towards our families, to our friends, to our peers, to the College, and to the world. One-hundred words to describe the journey my forty-seven year-two students, the forty-eight in year-one, and the seventeen staff have undertaken since March 2020. I will never forget this group; their responses, their care, their stoicism and their resilience in relation to the times we are passing through. These people are whom I would have chosen to participate in this moment in our lives. Look at the work they have made during this time. It is astonishing.
