In her remarks to the class, speaking to the good-natured rivalry between the two colleges, President Mandel said, “We at Williams are extremely proud of you today. You’ve done amazing work to earn your degree. I hope you feel the joy of a job well done. Sure, we’ll keep giving you a hard time, and you’ll do the same to us. But when the kidding stops, we’re fortunate that Amherst graduates are helping address the big challenges.”
The Class of 2020’s in-person commencement was delayed until earlier this month as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
