Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair told graduates to pursue noble causes, to continue to learn with humility, and not to fear failure, among other lessons. He addressed the 465 members of the Class of 2012 on a sunny day on the lawn of Miller Library. A few protesters from the community shouted from the back of the audience before being asked to leave campus, and one was arrested after refusing to leave peacefully. See also:
