“Trustee panel to study new diversity initiatives” (Campus Notebook, March 7) reminded me just how often, when praising Princeton, two themes prevailed. First, the University offered an introduction to the most diverse and extraordinary people imaginable, yet seemingly united in love and fascination for this place that had put them together, so diverse in so many ways, but so united in appreciation. And then, for a freshman premedical student to be served the absolute gift of the original year of Humanities I and II and to be lectured by such distinguished professors as George Thomas (religion) and Robert Goheen ’40 *48 (classics) was incredible. Top that with the fact that President Goheen was my weekly preceptor for our group of five students. WOW!
