Thanks are in order to Dave Madsen, associate professor of history (a.k.a. the Master of the Mace), for taking us up on the offer and relaying some words of wisdom for our soon-to-be graduates. Dave shared these lyrics from the song "Dark Road" by Sarah Jarosz:

And t
he road is long but it always unwinds.
And I find if you take your time,
You will make it fine.
