Freshman year took Political Science 101, engaged with the text, bell rang, the class was over. But Mr. Gaudino’s classes were never over. When I walked out of the class that fall day, with a classmate of mine, Jim Boynton, the two of us couldn’t stop talking. We just became lifelong friends and the triggering event was the fact that both of us really were charged up by the Gaudino experience. It was probably the second week [at Williams]. I guess the first week we were climbing the mountain and doing all the orientation stuff. We were reading deGrazia’s book about anomie and there we were getting our minds stretched and talking about engagement and disengagement. And Jim and I remained lifelong friends.
