Life in Pixels: Commencement 2018

Bachelor’s degrees were bestowed upon 377 graduates on Saturday, May 12, on the lawn outside the Berman Museum during Ursinus’s 145th commencement ceremony. Roald Hoffmann, an American theoretical chemist who won the 1981 Nobel Prize in Chemistry and is a published author of plays and poetry, delivered the commencement address and received the honorary degree of Doctor of Humane Letters. He spoke to the Ursinus class of 2018 about the intersection of creativity, science, art and the humanities. “I want you to serve your soul and mind, to read and think, to look at nature and art, to care,” he said.
