Welcome, and congratulations!
Graduation is such an exciting occasion. It’s a time to reflect on your accomplishments and look forward to the many opportunities that await you — whether you are starting that first job, going to grad school or taking some time to travel.
Whatever your future holds, I want to remind you that you are forever a member of the Florida State University family.
Please stay in touch with us. We want to hear about your success, and we hope that you will join us in our efforts to advance this university that means so much to all of us.
Seniors, if you don’t already have a glass, please pick one up from the table.
And now, Jean and I would like to offer a toast to you.
To the Class of 2016 — I wish you all the best as you begin the next leg of your journey. And wherever you go, may all your roads be paved with garnet and gold! Congratulations, and Go ‘Noles!
Now, I’d like to ask all seniors to gather in front of the stage for a group photo.
