Remarks From The Executive Chair Dear Class of 2014, First and foremost, congratulations, you’ve made it—after years of high school, hours of completing college applications, and those final days leading up to Orientation, you are now an official Johns Hopkins undergraduate. For a moment, I encourage you to consider the implications of this statement: what does it truly mean to be a student at Johns Hopkins; what defines that student and differentiates him/her from all others? There is something indeed that unites us all. The Johns Hopkins student is a force to be reckoned with—a tsunami of ambition, a tempest of ingenuity, and a ceaseless hailstorm of commitment. Here you will find some of the most passionate individuals manifested in the great care they take in perfecting and advancing not only their knowledge, but that of the world itself. Surrounded by this deep level of dedication, I’ve often found myself in awe when reflecting upon the degree of power a Johns Hopkins education affords. Now a graduate, there is a subtle change in the normalcy within every aspect of my life. There is, emphatically, a sense of pride. There is the idea that I’ve now just been inducted within this community of pioneers. We didn’t choose to attend Johns Hopkins because we thought it was easy. We didn’t choose Johns Hopkins because we weren’t up for a challenge. We chose it, no, you chose it because you’re a very specific type of person. It is, the most unique thing indeed; there is the notion and belief in the absolute power of knowledge. There is a passionate person, a person who yearns for the unattainable and is comforted solely by the thought that another challenge exists. Your entrance into this university has forever changed your life. Upon leaving this place, it will always stay with you; with the people you meet, the places you work, and the ideas you conceive. Most importantly, that title is something very tangible; a Johns Hopkins education is an honor that people respect; and this institution, if you allow it, will help you forge a future self that will have a very real and meaningful impact on the modern world. Honor this gift, for truly it is that. Have fun and remember to make the most of every opportunity you can; I assure you then you will know what it means to be a Johns Hopkins student, because simply, it will be you. Jonathon Paul DiTroia Executive Staff Chair Orientation 2010
