This year, Smith Medals will be presented to diplomat Gillian Martin Sorensen ’63, author Jane Abramson O’Connor ’69, physician Cynthia F. Bearer ’72 and financial literacy advocate Stephanie D.

Sometimes computers, corporate servers and ISPs cache Web pages. Press F5. Pressing F5 refreshes your connection to the webcast server and re-loads the webcast Web page and related content. This can often resolve a general connection problem. Users on congested Internet connections may experience lower quality video. We recommend using a DSL, cable modem, or T1 Internet connection.
A congested local Internet connection will result in video buffering and freezing frames. Under very congested circumstances the video may stop streaming but the audio will continue. The video and audio might also start and stop intermittently when Internet connection congestion is experienced.
