What is Your Meliora Moment?

We all remember a special moment–a Meliora Moment–when we were encouraged or inspired to be “ever better” and, as a result, we accomplished something we never dreamed we could. Regardless of our affiliation, each of us has our own University of Rochester memories and story to tell. What’s your Meliora Moment?
