Ox moving through fields of reeds at night.

Animated illustration by Jiin Choi MLA ’23. Jiin is an illustrator and designer in her first year at the GSD. Her design depicts the quiet celebration of moonlight and natural cycles and was inspired by the reed grass fields she hiked through as a child in Korea.

Wishing the GSD’s Alumni & Friends prosperity, happiness, and good health.

After such an unfathomable year, I am glad to be welcoming a new year, one that I hope will offer renewal and connect us with the loved ones, communities, and ideas that nourish us.

One of the more uplifting moments that came from this past year was sharing our virtual programming with you and our alumni worldwide in a new way. I was heartened to see so many familiar names and faces in the Zoom rooms. I look forward to the day when we will be together again.

With kind regards,
