All signs point to a great year

Senior Danny Gaynor, a political science major in Arts & Sciences, acknowledges the audience after delivering an inspirational and moving speech about his experience becoming part of the WUSTL community during Convocation Aug. 20 in the Athletic Complex. The annual event serves as the University’s vehicle to formally welcome and introduce all new students and their families to campus. It is the last time the Class of 2013 will be assembled together until graduation. Chancellor Mark S. Wrighton gave the keynote address to a packed house, and Andrew Rehfeld, Ph.D., associate professor of political science in Arts & Sciences, made the faculty presentation.
