Graduation Week





It is a tradition around the MSU campus that the soon to be graduates walk around and take photos in their cap and gown, at all the iconic places. It is a rite of passage and one they look forward to experiencing with their friends. It has been a week filled with excitement for Melissa, all leading up to the graduation ceremony tonight, where she will walk across stage to accept her diploma and attain her bachelor of arts from the College of Communication Arts and Sciences.



It has been a week of savoring every moment with her good friends. And, it has been a life changing week where she accepted a job offer that will start her on a career in corporate communications.



We are so proud of all she has accomplished in four years and her graduation will be celebrated with family and friends. The four years at MSU are something she will always treasure and all her experiences, from late night homework to performing with the pompon team to football tailgates, will all be wonderful memories to hold forever.



She is a remarkable and amazing girl with a bright future and we will be celebrating right along with her.

Have a wonderful weekend!

  12. Congratulations!! It's a proud moment to see your child complete this part of their lives - I still remember sitting in the auditorium and hearing my son's name called amongst 1000 new police officers. My daughter chose to skip her graduation from university, but I loved watching her designs come down the runway at her post-grad design college.
