Pomp and Circumstance

It is graduation weekend on our campus. Students are moving out of residences halls, parking lots are jammed, and families are arriving to join in the festivities.

My graduate assistant, Kari, will commence tonight and embark on her career in Student Affairs. She has made dynamic contributions to our program over the last year and we are excited about her new adventure.

The Hixson Scholars will welcome 42 new graduates tomorrow, bringing the total number graduated to 818 since the first graduating class in 1999. Their successes are many and will continue to warm my heart.

It’s a great time to read some Graduation Wisdom. Here’s one of my favorites.

Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart. ~~Steve Jobs

Congratulations all!
