Organization, Information & Learning Sciences Graduates 2022

A celebration……

A time for looking back on lessons learned, adventures shared, bright moments filled with special meaning

A farewell……

A time for saying goodbye to old friends,

to good times you’ve known…a time for packing away memories, treasures for tomorrow

A beginning….. 

A time for looking forward, a time to set new goals,

to dream new dreams, to try your wings and see what lies beyond

Congratulations Graduate!
