Caps off!

Fall GraduatesThe Berry alumni family welcomed approximately 60 new members at fall commencement. Speakers included Tyler Julian (14C), a double major in management and marketing, and Dr. Bob Frank, assistant professor and longtime chair in the Department of Communication.

Bob FrankFrank, who will be retiring after spring semester, delivered an entertaining and inspiring message to the graduates. With characteristic wit, he focused on those things he’d like them to forget, as well as one very important thing he hopes they will remember.

“I do want you to forget about the lesser worries in life immediately in front of you,” he implored. “I do want you to forget about racing to the pinnacle of success in your life, and I do want you to forget about your major determining your future. All that I ask you today is that you not forget that, at Berry, you got one of the best educations a college graduate could ever want, and I hope you … make the most of it.”

This was Berry’s last December commencement, as fewer students are opting for a fall graduation.
