Hello Class of 2016,
My sincere congratulations go out to you on your graduation from RMU and School of Engineering, Mathematics and Science!
As I am sure when you reflect on your time here, several things will come to mind, and as time goes by, we will all cherish our best memories together!
As your Dean, I am reaching out to let you know that all of us here: professors, staff, and administrators in SEMS are extremely proud of your successes. So your graduation and your success is SEMS success too!
As you will be marching into adulthood, please know that SEMS faculty and I will always be here to help you. Our participation in your life is not over just because you graduate. We are still here if you need support or just want to pop in and update us on your journey.
As you go out there it is okay to worry and be concerned, trust me it is normal. I recently had a discussion with the first graduate from our pre-medicine program, Taryn Reichard. We talked about how she overcame her insecurities of becoming a doctor. She felt that the support and encouragement that she received from being able to interact one-on-one with her professors and advisors at RMU was one of the many reasons she became the person she is today.
In closing, I wish you much success upon your graduation from RMU. I know you will work hard to attain your goals. Don’t forget, we would love to hear from you, so please stop by or drop us a note so we remain a part of your life.
