First Collection 2010: Deivid Rojas '11
At First Collection, Deivid Rojas '11 reminded his "300 new Facebook friends" that "you are not alone. When you light your candle, you are making a compromise not only with Swarthmore, with progressive ideals, justice, the world, and with yourselves, but also with one another. When someone’s fire goes off, it is your job as a group to help the person light it again." Joining Deivid at the event were President Rebecca Chopp, Professor of Studio Art Syd Carpenter, and Dean of Students Liz Braun.
