Berea College President Lyle Roelofs and the Great Commitments: Convocation Display

This Thursday, at 3pm in the Seabury Center, President Roelofs will kick of this year’s convocation schedule with his thoughts on Berea’s Great Commitments. Entitled “Exploring the Commitments: Let’s Get to Work”, his convocation theme has inspired our reference labor student, Sunaina Sherchan, to produce these stunning visual interpretations of the commitments.
