Stoles were handed out following remarks from graduates about the journey they’re about to complete.

It feels so incredible,” said Honors graduate, Alicia Gerrity.

I feel a little speechless, especially hearing everyone’s phenomenal next steps. I feel really honored to be surrounded in the same room with them.
