Thank you from President Hawkinson

I want to express my deepest gratitude to all those who made Saturday’s commencement ceremonies a success. So many contributed to the weekends events: the administrators and staff who planned and worked the event, the custodial and grounds crews who prepared the buildings and beautiful landscaping, the police and security personnel, the volunteers, the Department of Cinema, Television and Media Production for enhancing our ceremonies and allowing families across the world to watch our ceremonies, our faculty, students and their families and friends. I'm proud to be among you all. Thank you and have a wonderful holiday season.

Dr. Kenneth S. Hawkinson, University President
