Thousands of family and friends watched on Sunday afternoon as nearly 2,700 students from the ’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences graduated during commencement ceremonies at Gampel Pavilion in Storrs.
Representing 55 different majors from 23 departments, students received their diplomas in dual ceremonies Sunday in disciplines ranging from journalism, psychology and political science to communications, human development and family studies.
Students were addressed by Cindy Luo, a graduating senior from Madison, a dual-degree student with majors in linguistics and philosophy, classics and ancient Mediterranean studies and English. UConn President Susan Herbst delivered the keynote address.
"College is only the first step, a place where our budding interests are nurtured and developed," Luo said. "Keep on learning. Be flexible. Try something new. But remember yourselves: remember what makes you happy – keeps you going," she said.
Herbst praised students for their hard work, and urged them to define their own lives.
"I hope you will be able to look back at this brief, precious time spent here at the University of Connecticut as among the best and most rewarding years of your life," Herbst said. "Don’t forget no matter how old you are, you will always be Huskies."
