As you know, the arts & sciences are the tale of the future. The mystery of magic, the acts of war, the development of society ... all are affected by the power of knowledge, of understanding. Understanding the laws of nature, the laws that govern our being, can only make us stronger, healthier, and happier. I am proud of the students within our provinces, for they are the ones that will lead us into the future. Take good care of them. Offer them the support they need, for what they can offer is so much more. I now would like to take this opportunity to explore some of the areas of studies our land offers.
