City College of New York Trip, Day 1

We are safely arrived at City College of New York, the first free public institution of higher institution in the US;at our dormitory welcome reception I was asked to give a toast;not knowing what to say, I repeated the words of the university's founder (who also happens to be the first US diplomat to Japan),Townsend Harris (1804-1878): "Open the doors to all! Let the children of the rich and the poor take their seats together and know of no distinction save that of industry, good conduct, and intellect."
