DR. SAMUEL BELKIN President, Yeshiva University As you complete your educa- tion at Stern College for Women, I extend to you my sincerest congratulations and wish you ever success in your future endeavors. Your out- standing attainments reflect honor upon yourselves, your families, and your alma mater. It was to make available a new kind of education that Stern College was established. Here the arts and sciences of the western culture are perpet- uated together with the time- honored practices and teach- ings of Judaism. Here the modern woman can devote her- self to the complete develop- ment of her capabilities as a Jewess and as a student of world thought. You who have benefited from this comprehensive training bear the obligation of carrying on the traditions of Torah even as you enter into your various chosen professions. I trust that you will meet this challenge with distinction, dedicating yourselves to a lifetime of serv- ice to the Jewish community and all humanity. Sincerely yours, Dr. Samuel Belkin

Dan Vogel Acting Dean In the years to come, you will learn that the success of your education at Stern College will be evaluated not so much by the details of your knowledge as by the attitude that is engendered by it. It is an educational commonplace to expect facts to be forgotten, but the hope of every one of your teachers is that he has contributed through the facts and the information and the discussions and the lectures at least a modicum of that immeasurable quality, that mysterious evolvement known as " character. " In this context, the key concept by which you and your college will be judged are commitment and re- sponsibility. On the basis of your breadth of intel- lectual acquaintance— the study of the goals and hopes and fears of Western civilization lurching along in a burgeoning environment of psychological and natural science, and the study of the unique, unconquerable, eternal history and religion of Israel, existing as a vibrant conscience of civilization— on this basis, you are expected to make your commitment to God, the Jewish people, and your community. Your commit- ment will require the assumption of responsibilities which are, indeed, the same as those Abraham first felt in Canaan— to teach with dedication, to act with purity, to live with virtue, to study the exemplary ways and words of God so that they may be re-enacted and fulfilled by humanity. This will require of you greatness. Now, greatness is measured only by contribution, and few of us will make that singular contribution to warrant recorded immortality. But each of you can achieve a piece of greatness and this will add lustre and pride to you, your family, your college, and your people. Thus, each of you can participate in immortality. Good luck, good deeds, and golden years. DR. DAN VOGEL Stern College looks with pride upon its fourth graduating class. During your undergraduate days the purposes and principles of Stern College, the hopes and dreams expressed for the fulfillment of its objec- tives were impressed upon you. The one hundred graduates who already claim Stern College as their Alma Mater have demonstrated the wisdom and foresight of the founders; they are taking their places in the world, whether in a large metropolis or in a small town, and are already be- coming guiding influences in the life of their com- munities, as educators, leaders and mothers. They are putting to practical use the education acquired during their four years here. We are confident that you, the class of 1961, will follow in the footsteps of your predecessors, continuing to develop intellectually and spiritually, with that inner serenity which stems from an abiding faith. ELIZABETH ISAACS Elizabeth Isaacs Dean of Students
