June 13 Day 97: Congratulations Mathematics Majors of 2020

You were just awarded your degrees virtually. It’s just not the same as sitting in the Tacoma Dome and clapping as you cross the stage. It has been my pleasure to work with you at UW Tacoma. You did an amazing job pivoting capstone presentations to virtual presentations with no warning in March and you have made it through our emergency remote quarter. I am so fortunate to know you and am proud of your accomplishments.

The graduates of 2020! Yahoo!!!

We’ve had some fun together, haven’t we? Go forth. Prosper. Do good. And come back to brag about your successes. Once a dawg, always a dawg. ❤

Created by Haley Skipper with the help of Ryan Card, Alan Bartlett, Yajun An, Sasha Malinsky, Rita Than, Maureen Kennedy, Zaher Kmail , Ander Erickson, Ruth Vanderpool, Erik Tou, Olga Shatunova, Julie Eaton, and yours truly.
