The Opposite of Loneliness

Marina Keegan, Yale class of 2012, wrote an article to her graduating class during commencement week. She not only addresses the importance of a community – which she found at Yale and wanted to continue building as a graduate – she discusses what benefits the liberal arts affords us – a sense of possibility.

KEEGAN: The Opposite of Loneliness: “What we have to remember is that we can still do anything.” 

Sadly, Marina died in a car accident May 26. Her obituary, here, describes the dynamic leader and friend she was at Yale and beforehand.

You can read more of her articles at the Yale Daily News, like “Even Artichokes Have Doubts“, which discusses why so many Yale graduates go into consulting or finance.
