“You are here because you are the best and brightest students,” Chancellor PradeepKhosla said. “Here, you will learn to use your left and right brain to think critically and to solve problems. You will learn to work with your peers and faculty members in different disciplines…That is the type of collaboration and thinking that we need to address problems facing our society—like food and water shortages, global warming and health issues.”

“The greatest search engine is not Google,” Don Murphy (welcome week keynote speaker) said. “The greatest search engine is the human mind…You must ask the question, “Who Am I?” What is my unique genius?” Use these years to gain a deeper understanding of yourself, not in terms of grades only but in terms of understanding, wisdom and knowledge.”
