  1. Wishing the class of 1926 sincere best thoughts and prayers for future growth and success !! BU was my first choice as a fine arts major when my parents drove both my trunk & me from Connecticut to Charlesgate Hall ! They were so sad to see their only daughter leave home – my brother was already in Med school – and we became lost on one way streets over the Mass Ave bridge in Cambridge. My two roommates & I shared everything that year. I was maid-of-honor for one roommate four years later and often stayed at my other roommate’s home in the Dakota, NYC. Lennon & Yoko had not yet purchased her family’s apartment.
    My Dad hauled my huge trunk up five flights of stairs. At CFA, I made lifelong friends and was nurtured & supported by the art faculty during a family tragedy three years later.
    You each made the correct choice !! Bless you all – so excited to listen to the shared emotional experiences – now open your books – pronto!
