About the graduates

Letter to the Editor | Friday, April 24, 2009

I would like to thank Jeff Immelt (“A?few thoughts on a special day,”?April 22) for taking the time to offer his thoughtful perspective on the controversy surrounding this year’s graduation.

As an engineering student who spent two summers interning with GE Aviation, I feel that GE is one of the finest companies in the world.

As a senior who has grown weary of reading all of the emotionally-charged letters surrounding President Obama’s invitation, I found it refreshing to have someone like Mr. Immelt recognize that one speech won’t change what Notre Dame stands for and that graduation should be about the graduates.
