Campus is alive again…Classes started yesterday and there is a buzz of excitement on campus. I love this time when everything starts over for another year. This picture conveys the feeling of youthful exuberance still present on campus. This photo was taken at a courthouse pep rally in the 1960s. At the top of the picture toward the right side is Bill Placher [W1970] among his fellow freshmen gathered at the courthouse for a pep rally.

This picture conveys a great deal and seems a perfect metaphor for a new year, full of hope and energy.
