National Security Adviser Delivers
Class of 2012’s Last Lesson

“Honesty, integrity, and fairness”—these are professional traits to cultivate throughout one’s life in good times and bad, said John Brennan, FCRH ’77, one of President Obama’s principal national security advisers, in an address to the Fordham University Class of 2012.

“Never judge your actions according to what those
around you do. Judge yourself against the high
standards you set for yourself,” he told an enthusiastic audience of more than 15,000 graduates and their guests gathered on Edwards Parade for the University’s 167th Commencement on May 19.

Did You Know?

Fordham is the home to the oldest seismic station in New York City. Operated by the Physics Department since 1910, the station began in the basement of the Administration Building. In 1923, the University constructed a dedicated new seismic observatory, donated by William Spain. That original building was moved twice, and, since 1931 has sat at its present site east of Freeman Hall.

Stop, Look, and Listen: Carefully Assessing Fordham’s Web Needs
