The completion of this semester, your degree, and this journey came with challenges none of us would have expected. However, you persevered. You overcame. You did not give up.

People will look back on your class as among the strongest and most resilient ever. We are all so proud of you.

Below are links to messages compiled to honor you and your accomplishments. Our hope and expectation is that your experience at the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, both in and out of the classroom, will continue to support you as you transition into the next chapter of your life.
