Commencement 2014

Commencement 2014 Highlights


As they embark on paths toward professional careers or post-graduate studies, members of Franklin & Marshall College's Class of 2014 were urged by ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos to take chances and embrace lifelong learning.

"I hope you all stay curious and never stop learning," said Stephanopoulos, principal speaker for F&M's Commencement ceremony May 10. "One of the best parts of my job right now is how many different parts of the world, how many stories, and how much information it exposes me to every day.

"All that makes for a rich, stimulating and fast-paced professional life, but I also have to remind myself every day to slow down, to think, and remember what it's like to really study."
