Monday's convocation ceremony marked the beginning of the 2012 academic year and the beginning of a journey for the class of 2012. A bagpipe procession led faculty and administration into the gym, building the energy in the room. “Good morning, NYU-Poly Class of 2016!” said Dean of Student Affairs Anita Farrington. Her greeting was echoed by cheers from incoming and current students alike.
“It’s been said by a friend of mine that talent is the oil of the 21st century,” said President Hultin, during his address. “You are that talent.” Following, he introduced keynote speaker, NYU-Poly alumnus and Yahoo! chairman, Fred Amoroso.
