In Harbel, Margibi County, Liberia—a community once shattered by two civil wars that propagated the use of child soldiers—Ollie White ’18 is building Beautiful Beginnings.
The 126th Commencement at Gordon took place on Saturday, May 19. There were 352 baccalaureate degrees conferred in the arts and sciences, and 93 graduate degrees in Education, Music Education and Leadership.
Gordon’s new Master of Science in Financial Analysis program launched Monday night with a celebratory dinner for its inaugural cohort, and its first class.
Beginning this year, Gordon Plus will offer a series of options exclusively for qualified Gordon students who are either graduating in December or have a light spring semester load before their May graduation.
An idea spearheaded by Tony Pitkin in the late 1980s, the program came to fruition in 1996, after nearly a decade in the making. Now, Pitkin’s vision has grown into a full-fledged, thriving program with nearly 500 total students.
