Today's the day – all the hard work, late nights, early mornings, projects, papers, meetings, and exams – the passion for learning culminates in exhaltation and accomplishment with the conferring of degrees. Welcome to the thousands of family and friends on campus today, and congratulations to you, for the love and support that has guided your students to this moment.
