In Memoriam

IN MEMORY OF.... OUR CLASSMATES AND FACULTY WHO HAVE PASSED AWAY.

“Only when you drink from the river of silence shall you indeed sing.
And when you have reached the mountain top, then you shall begin to climb.
And when the earth shall claim your limbs, then shall you truly dance.”

~Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet~
