Library Café may be closed Monday for the holiday, Brooklyn College commencement with over 4,000 to graduate and speakers announced

Come to the commencement or right after if you do not have tickets. Probably 90% of your friends you will not see after graduation. Even if not graduating many acquaintances will give you their number or you may be looking for them for semesters not realizing they left. Even best friends I found only last 2 to 3 years. One moves or has different hours or a lot of reasons. Think of how many lifelong friends you have or your family does. Many consider some their best friend but they do not see them for years. I am talking about some you see at least maybe once a month. You can see it on the BC home page and on monitors in the college building lobbies. Two master’s degree ceremonies will be held at 1:45 and 6:45 p.m. on May 27, while the bachelor’s degree ceremony will take place on May 28 at 9:30 a.m. Both ceremonies will take place at the Walt Whitman Theater, The baccalaureate commencement speaker Barry Salzberg ’74, and the recipient of a Doctor of Humane Letters, is the global CEO of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited, the world’s largest professional service network. Dr. Rebecca Fuhrer ’67 will receive the Distinguished Alumni Award at the baccalaureate ceremony for her dedication to public health and her outstanding career as epidemiologist in Canada. Diana Rogovin Davidow ’66, ’73 M.S., a leader in the field of speech pathology, will receive the Presidential Medal.

The master’s ceremonies speakers are David Amram, composer and former musical director of the Lincoln Center Theater, and Dr. Leon Glass ’63, one of the world’s leading theoretical biologists. Amram, who started his professional life playing the French horn for the jazz bands of Charlie Mingus, Dizzy Gillespie and Lionel Hampton, will receive an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts degree. Glass will receive the Distinguished Alumni Award for his studies on using physics and mathematics to understand the complex physiological phenomena that occur with certain human ailments.
