Congratulations Class of 2017

As spring comes into season, students across the country are blossoming as they prepare for their next step in life. Saint Xavier University (SXU) offers its most jubilant congratulations to all the graduates! Your tremendous efforts and determination have culminated in your achievements.

Graduation is neither an end nor a beginning; rather it is a special moment that marks the continuation of your journey. Moving on to the next leg can be intimidating, but instilled in you are the skills to conquer it. Take the time to celebrate what it is you have accomplished, and go forth with enthusiasm and courage.

You are a generation of innovators with resources at your fingertips. You have the ability to find cures, establish ideas, and build bridges. Do not let your fields divide you, but intertwine the arts and sciences for a successful and amicable future. The world is waiting, and this is your time to mold it.

Get out there and show the world what you’ve got—happy Commencement cougars!
