Spring Commencement 2017

Processed with VSCO with nc preset

We typically hear the jingle “It’s the most wonderful time of the year” during the holidays, since it is a Christmas song. But, during this weekend of commencement ceremonies, it felt like this moment was the most wonderful time of the year.

This weekend was filled with eleven ceremonies, each highlighting the struggles our students overcame and successes our students worked hard for. Graduation season is easily one of the best things our team is involved with simply due to the pride and happy tears both students and families share. We have the privilege of witnessing the nervousness students face as they walk into Swinney and the excitement of families waiting for their graduates.
So, we must thank you all for letting us be part of this moment of your lives. From the photos we take of you from different angles to find the most flattering one to fixing your cap and stole, thank you for letting us play a small part on such a big day.

To our graduated Roos, you are now alumni! Wherever life takes you from here, we know you will exceed all expectations. Never forget to #RooUp and reach out if you ever need a helping hand. We are so proud of each and every one of you and cannot wait to see what you all will accomplish! We wish you luck with all your endeavors, Class of 2017!

With #Roo pride and love,
UMKC’s CAs
