A note about the use of student images on this page/in our video: Images used are ones for which the university secured permission from the matriculating students
via a release form submitted by students during the period from August 3-7, 2020. While, unfortunately, we were not able to use every image for which we were
granted permission, we are grateful to the students who authorized the use of their image as a very valuable contribution to this special occasion.
