Each year as I greet the incoming class at Stern College for Women I share some of my thoughts on the qualities of a successful college career. These thoughts clearly reflect a bias that the college years are a time for academic achievement and personal growth. In a sense I see these years as a somewhat selfish period, when one should concentrate primarily, though not exclusively, on oneself. But, each year as the time comes for me to say farewell to the graduating class of Stern College for Women, I hesitate to offer thoughts about what characterizes a successful future. In this area I have fewer biases, though the options seem clear. As reflected in the theme of this yearbook, many members of the class of 1981 have prepared themselves for professional careers. This trend follows directly from the years of quality education that have instilled a feeling of personal expectation and confidence. The traditional view of Judaism that has placed the woman within the home, not as a caretaker but as a builder and spiritual leader, may no longer seem sufficent. No matter that this career when pursued with dedication, inspiration, and intelligence can lead to success, and no matter that career combined with community service can fill a lifetime with personal satisfaction. Yet the attraction of a professional career is compelling. Four years at Stern College have taught you that Torah U ' Madah. as an experience and as a weltanschaung, is both intellectually and physically demanding. The future will teach you that a family career combined with a professional career makes demands that are intellectual and phys- ical, as well as emotional. The difficult decisions you will make as you meet these demands will be personal ones, of course, and yet I hope they will be colored by your collective experience at Stern College. I wish all of you the wisdom to know the right decisions, the courage to follow through, and the peace of mind to enjoy the fruits of your labor. I feel truly privileged that you have dedicated this yearbook to me, and I will always look back on this occasion with pride. May you go from strength to strength in all your undertakings.
