Congratulations to all of our students, on completing this most difficult of semesters. As our Commencement Speaker, Brian Mattiello of Hartford Healthcare so eloquently describes for our graduates, these words which we hope will carry you forever forward:
- No. 1 Find what burns in your heart and commit to it.
- No. 2 Know that your greatest accomplishments in life will be done in partnerships with others, so value those relationships.
- No. 3 Make sure that whatever you do, that there’s benefit for others, because the true meaning of education is not what you know, it’s sharing what you know with others.
