We just finished up Graduation Weekend 2014. I am so happy to celebrate with all of our new graduates!
On Friday night, we hosted students and their families at an intimate dinner at a local restaurant. I got to meet parents, siblings, and other loved ones in a celebration of what our students have accomplished, and the great things which they are heading to next.
Then Saturday morning was the Graduate School ceremony. Nobody tripped, and everyone received their diploma. Saturday afternoon was the commencement Mass, and we had a beautiful homily from Fr. Jenkins. The whole-University Graduation Ceremony was on Sunday, and the weather was, against all odds, beautiful!
A couple of our students (Elaine and Marcy) made their way into the official ND graduation video. See them here, they’re at 0:40. http://bit.ly/NDGradWrapup
It’s been a great year and I wish the best for all of our students! Congratulations!!!
