On a more serious note:
Our four years weren’t just a series of interesting anecdotes. We grew personally, we learned a lot, we changed the school, and we also dealt with tragedy. Our four years were bookended by heartbreak: our first semester saw what many experienced to be a traumatic presidential election that shook the college and America, and our last semester was tragically upended by the pandemic. These current events were formative to our experience of Haverford and will forever shape our memories of our time here.

As the class of 2020 graduates (however that might look), a lot of institutional memory leaves with us. But that is the nature of an institution like Haverford—the following classes will fill that gap, and the college will continue.
