AB ’07 has a nice post on Sadness at WSO, although it doesn’t quite measure up to his brillant monsoon writing last year. He does, however, elicit this comment from JE ’04:

[W]hile your time at Williams maybe marked by periodic regret due to changes beyond your control, I encourage — exhort — you to unabashedly throw yourself into every moment of it. As I look back, I realize there may never be another time where a certain set of factors — an amazing physical setting, brilliant mentors focused on teaching you above all else, a tightnit group of intelligent peers, a total lack of external distractions — conspire in such a forceful way. Some things change — Baxter may be gone, students above you will leave, new students will enter — but the overall environment is still amazing.

Amen.
