Celebrating the Class of 2017


This morning nearly 5,000 students graduated from Virginia Commonwealth University.

As graduates of one of America’s premier research universities, our alumni have been challenged and changed by their experience at VCU. I am proud of each and every one of them and know they have a promising future awaiting them.

I also know that our recent graduates will continue to be challenged and changed. They will keep progressing, questioning and making a positive change in our world. I hope they will always remember that their opportunities are limitless because their potential is limitless.

Please join me in celebrating and congratulating the Class of 2017.
