You've written your final exams and completed your program – congratulations! And on top of that, you accomplished this during a global pandemic — wow!
"I am incredibly proud of your hard work, and I am confident that you will flourish in the years ahead with everything you have learned through this pandemic. Some of you may have learned a lot by exploring all the new online tools to support your learning. Some may have developed a whole new set of skills by being flexible and resourceful in solving problems and challenges. And others among you may have developed new ways of thinking and communicating with one another and the world around you," Chris McGrath, VP, Student Success, said.
"All these skills are important. But I would suggest the most important of them all is the confidence you have in yourself to not only survive challenging times, but also to thrive through them. Celebrate what you have learned. Be proud of your confidence. And when you combine those two things, be hopeful about what’s ahead of you, because we’ve been telling you this for a long time now... you’ve got this."
