A Look Back at Commencement

Today is your day. Today you have your degree and it is the beginning of your career, the beginning of a new life. It is a time of hope, a time to believe in yourself, a time to dare. Be curious, be enthusiastic, be tenacious, and be engaged. It is a time in your life where the word ‘impossible’ doesn’t exist, a time to reach for the sky.
