In his May 12, 2022 Commencement edition of Gee Mail, President Gordon Gee acknowledges the dedication and resilience of the Class of 2022 as graduates prepare for their next journeys.
“Merriam-Webster defines an outcome as ‘something that follows as a result or consequence,’” Gee said. “These students worked smart and played smart at our beloved University, and as a result, the world holds endless opportunities.
“At West Virginia University, it is our calling to foster meaningful experiences and life-changing education that leads to positive outcomes.”
Among those speaking with Gee include Rudi Safarudin, a first-generation college student from Indonesia studying pharmacy; Lillian Rhinehart, a Foundation Scholar and Order of Augusta recipient from Elkins; and Torey Wright, an engineering student from Monroe, Georgia.
As many as 4,500 new graduates will walk the stage at West Virginia University’s Commencement (May 13-15), which returns to the WVU Coliseum and Canady Creative Arts Center following two years of pandemic-restructured ceremonies.
