Prior to break, our new president was inaugurated at Butler University. President Danko accepted the position gracefully, listening attentively while a number of honorary and symbolic gifts were presented to him from student government officers, professors and provosts alike.
I was lucky enough to be invited to the ceremony, and was supplied with a cap and gown, thanks to the efforts our SGA president. Myself and several other students representing Butler’s various clubs and student organizations processed in with the faculty and staff.
I felt regal, but I also felt a sense of pride and optimism in Butler’s future. Much was talked about the future of higher education, how it is bound to change through the next several decades, but I don’t doubt for a second that Butler will keep up or outpace these changes through its energized student body and top-notch professors.
