Professor of Chemistry Kate Queeney opened the 2012-13 academic year with a convocation address met by cheers and foot stomping from students who filled John M. Greene Hall on September 5. “Every year at this time, as you all suddenly converge on campus, I am struck by how much I’ve missed you,” she told the audience. The traditional academic event is not a staid occasion at Smith. Students often attend dressed in celebratory garb. Referencing the student attire, Queeney quipped, “Look left. Look right. Don’t wear that to an interview.”
