The Tassel is Worth the Hassle: 2018 Mid-Academic Year Graduation

Graduation is not just an event, but a process that goes on until the last day of our lives. This was the gist of the University President's charge during the final moments of the Mid-Academic Year Graduation Ceremony on March 21, 2018 at the Valencia Hall. Dr. Cecilia N. Gascon's speech urged the graduates to always keep the University's core values to heart in order to turn future challenges into possibilities. In another highlight of the event, guest speaker Hon. Karlo Alexei B. Nograles challenged the new graduates to use their learned skills and experiences to evoke change in the society they are living in. It was highly reminiscent of the words of lawyer, politician, political commentator, movie critic and reality television arbitrator Edward Koch, “The fireworks begin today. Each diploma is a lighted (sic) match and each one of you is a fuse”.

Congratulations to the Mid-Academic Year Graduates! Your BulSU family wishes you all the best in your future endeavors.
