We want to wish our accomplished class of 2015 a very happy graduation! Whether they studied online, or in a classroom throughout our five campuses, these 17,000 graduates are joining the University of Massachusetts alumni network. UMass has a network of nearly 500,000 alumni located throughout the world.
UMass graduates are scientists, writers, public officials, artists, entertainers, athletes, business people and government officials.
Our entertainment majors will join the ranks of actors like Richard Gere and Bill Pullman. Our Art & Literature majors will join Chicken Soup for the Soul author Jack Canfield and Pulitzer Prize winning poet Natasha Trethewey. Our business majors will join leading forces in today’s field, such as Life is Good founder John Jacobs, former chairman and CEO of General Electric Jack Welch, and president of Hill Holiday Karen Kaplan.
We have faith that our 2015 graduates will be just as successful as the notable alumni listed above, as well as all the other alums who have become leaders and driving forces in their fields.
We look forward to see what the future brings for this year’s graduates. We know they are ready to tackle the workforce and that they all have bright futures ahead!
