The studies are over and now the real world awaits. Muskingum College held its 156th commencement today. With a little over 300 graduates, the class of 2001 is the largest graduating class ever at Muskingum. The feature speaker of the ceremony was Columbus native, Robert Dilenschneider, who is one of the country’s leading communications strategy Counselors and President of The Dilenschneider Group. He encouraged students to do something career-wise that makes them very happy and makes them feel good about themselves, so they give back to society. Muskingum College President, Anne Steele wished the students luck and reminded them to have fun. Graduating members of the Muskingum Ladies Softball team missed the ceremony today because they are competing in the regional finals.
