It was a beautiful afternoon of June 12, Saturday. The Albers School of Business and Economics hosted a graduation celebration party for undergrads, grads and their family and friends. The Paccar atrium of Pigott building was packed with hundreds of faculty, staff, students and their guests. This year we have about 290 students graduating from Albers, representing one of the most diverse graduating classes in the Pacific Northwest. Graduating students dressed up and showed up with emotions. Some felt sad because they knew they would leave SU, one of the best universities, which provides a unique approach to undergraduate and graduate education that satisfies their quest for a deeper knowledge of their field with a broader sense of purpose and enrichment. Some felt happy because they knew that they would use everything they had learned at SU to explore and develop their careers. Each of them knows the opportunities are unlimited; the doors are open for them. For example, an undergraduate, Suleng Sueong, completed her BA degree with triple majors (Math, Accounting & Finance), will continue her Master of Finance Engineering at Columbia University this fall. Dennis Feng said he wanted to apply for SU’s MPAC program because he wanted to learn more to equip himself. At the same time, many graduating students told me that they are more confident in this competitive job market.
No matter what, Albers, SU and Alumni Relations will continue to support them and connect with them. We do believe these new graduates will shine and be successful.
Big Celebration for Our Graduates !!!!
