It is OK to take time to figure out what you want to do in life! Keep researching and learning! There are many opportunities to use your knowledge from WGS, such as reproductive justice, LGBTQ+ rights, anti-racism work, or fighting against sexual and domestic violence. And remember, if you ever feel like you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping in a room with a mosquito! You all rock! Congratulations!
"Congratulations class of 2020! I hope we have taught you to think critically, act responsibly, engage politically, and dream with a utopic impulse. It has been an honor and a pleasure to teach and work with you. My best wishes to all of you in the future! Now go out there and shake up the world!"
The class of 2020 has shown remarkable resilience, creativity, and brilliance completing courses online. Though you’ve missed graduating in person, your talents and accomplishments shine bright. Congratulations!
"I’m a believer in the power of knowledge and the ferocity of beauty, so from my point of view, your life is already artful—waiting, just waiting, for you to make it art,” Toni Morrison
Congratulations to the WGS Class of 2020!
