Before graduates put their education to work, they deserve recognition now more than ever

(BPT) - Graduation is a momentous occasion — a chance to think back on graduates’ journeys, to celebrate accomplishments, and of course, to look ahead. When we consider how difficult the last few years have been, we recognize the extraordinary resilience and perseverance this year’s graduates have shown in accomplishing this important educational goal. Because of this, DeVry University felt this year’s graduating class deserved a spectacular in-person Commencement Weekend celebrating their educational success, recognizing their incredible dedication and fanning their passion for the opportunities that lie ahead.

DeVry’s commencement keynote speaker, 29-time Paralympic medalist and World Champion swimmer Jessica Long, exemplifies this dedication, resilience and perseverance. Her story resonates with today’s graduates, as they embody the same kind of determination and drive that led them to this marquee moment and will lead them through what comes next.
