Cappy gave the Presidential Welcome to 2012 in the chapel this evening. The Deans also spoke, as well as VSA President Jimmy Kelly '09. The Barefoot Monkeys performed, calling upon their "surprise member" Cappy to take the stage as they threw bowling pins around her head.
The welcome turned political this year as many of the speakers addressed current events both directly and indirectly. Cappy called upon the Class of 2012 to affect change in the world and change "the way things are now." Dean Roelke said he was a proud Independent voter and quoted Senator Clinton's speech at last night's Convention. Jimmy Kelly mentioned how Vassar differs from the outside "world of inequality."
