Later she introduced me to two teachers who changed her life: Mary Heuser, who gave her a lifelong interest in art, and Clinton Mc Coy, who introduced her to the invertebrates of a noxious little pond outside town and made her a biologist.Both teachers were plain-spoken, warm, and best of all, demanding.I have always taken their qualities to be Wheaton College's qualities.
The idea is that the delay is supposed to be worth it, that in your last hour of college life I can make you better equipped to lead the rest of your lives.Never mind that most of you have parents ready to supply you with advice for as long as there is breath in their bodies, or yours.I, a perfect stranger, am supposed to reveal to you some deep general truths about the world that have so far remained hidden from you."Game of Thrones" star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and creators D. Weiss and David Benioff sat down with "IMDb LIVE After the Emmys" hosts Dave Karger and Jill Kargman to drop details about their epic night. Chairman Beard, President Marshall, President Shaw, Trustees, faculty members, parents and friends, alumnae/i reunion classes (especially the unsurpassed Class of 1960): thank you for giving me a great honor as well as the chance to be part of this wonderful day at Wheaton.
Try to resist being distracted by other sights and sounds, other thoughts and tasks, and when it is, guide your mind back to what you're doing.My impressions of Wheaton were formed while I was busy forming impressions of the president of the Class of 1960, Jill Galston, whom I was dating in her freshman year.To some extent, both sets of impressions fused together in my mind.Jill was the only girl in my experience who, saying goodnight after our first couple of dates, each time gave me a firm handshake.I attributed something of her sturdy confidence to Wheaton.It was clear that this was a person, and perhaps a college, that expected you to earn what you got, and where it wouldn't come easily!
