Congratulations, Class of 2022!! On behalf of the School of Earth and Space Exploration, I wish you the very best for all that is ahead. I look forward to all the ways in which you will contribute to a better future for everyone! -Meenakshi Wadhwa
You worked hard to fulfill this dream
On your own, with others, on teams.
To evolve and become you as you want to be,
To find your sunbeam, strive and be free.
Remember those that lent wind to your wings
Rise above, soar, see.
Seek your path and open doors.
The world needs you more than days of yore.
You now must rise and lead where others led before.
Make this world a better place with open eyes, open hearts.
Make your Pitchfork ROAR!
