The iconic, grassy hillside buzzed with excitement as hundreds of faculty, staff, students, and family members gathered before Page Terrace on Sunday, May 21, to celebrate the 307-member undergraduate Class of 2023 at Mary Baldwin University’s 181st Commencement.
It was the second ceremony of the weekend, with nearly 300 graduate and professional degree earners honored the day before.
“In this moment, to our graduates, dreams are reality,” said retiring President Pamela R. Fox, presiding over her 20th MBU Commencement. “Today, the profound belief we held in each of you is manifest. We are filled with joy and pride. Graduates of 2023: Congratulations, this is your day.”
