Invitations Are Out – Hey New Terriers!

March 27th, 2011

Picture 11

on the street is that we just dropped a bunch of invitations for new folk to make a future here – the 2015 Terriers. Welcome to the family.

Our Picture 13 have been on a long journey. Let’s all pause to celebrate them. They took deep breaths and listened to the bray of their hearts. You are . . . You join

Picture 22

Our traditions and legacy go on with you. We invite you to be a part of this tradition. You help to keep this place vital, vibrant, and alive.

Explanations of the Picture 14 are complicated. This place is about the power of now. There is no script. A place full of split-second decisions to fulfill what the moment requires. This is a grand conversation. Inspired thinking. A cool urban campus. Historic. Caring.

Picture 15 floats through this place – it is both lyrical and thought provoking. Style in a place where the mind and the heart dance together . . .

As a guide, here’s Picture 16 you can uphold here: be bold, be free, be truthful.

Here on the pulse of this new day, with Picture 17 we look up and out at the new folk and say
