Commencement 2001

Letter from the President of the Class of 2001

March 12, 2001

Dear Parents:

It's hard to believe that four years have flown by so fast! While we all have mixed feelings as we near the end of our time at Hopkins, I know that something we all look forward to is graduation day. Thus, it is my great pleasure to invite you to join the Johns Hopkins University Class of 2001 at our commencement exercises on May 24, 2001 at 1:45 pm. The Undergraduate Diploma Ceremony will take place on Garland Field and is expected to last approximately two to two-and-a-half hours.

The University-wide Commencement Ceremony will be held at 9:15 am that same day but the 1:45 pm ceremony is exclusively for undergraduates in the Zanvyl Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the G.W.C. Whiting School of Engineering.

Enclosed is information about several local restaurants and hotels. A number of these hotels offer discounts over commencement week if you mention Hopkins' name. The restaurants have been recommended and contacted by the senior class officers and me. Many will begin accepting reservations immediately for dinner the night before and the night of graduation as well as lunch before the Ceremony and several will offer discounts.

Please look for additional information regarding commencement activities in the upcoming months. Information will also soon be available online through the University's website at www.jhu.edu.

Graduation is as exciting an event for us as I know it is for you. I sincerely hope you will be able to celebrate with us.

Margaret E. Richards
President, Class of 2001
