Today, we honor the remarkable graduates of the College of Communication Arts & Sciences who now go into the world as alumni from one of the most impressive colleges housed within one of the top 100 universities in the world.
We cannot express in words how proud we are of each and every one of them. We are confident that through their education and the time they have spent here at MSU, combined with their eagerness and unbridled enthusiasm, they will impact the world in many incredible ways. Parents may remember their children as sticky-fingered toddlers, but we will remember these young adults as committed students, poised for taking on their roles as the next frontier of communicators—ready to lead, to challenge and to become life-changing innovators.
The class of 2012 is a group of go-getters, risk takers, goal setters and achievers. They will employ their knowledge and critical thinking skills to impact government, health, business, entertainment and education in ways that will profoundly affect others.
Today, they are joining an elite group of educated individuals from a world renowned university. They will never forget this day or their experience here at MSU.
They will succeed and make a difference. They are Spartans.
Go green. Go white. Go forth, CAS grads.
