Congratulations Class of 2015!

This week, more than 1,100 students from all our degree programs are graduating from Northwood University. Our commencement ceremonies in Florida, Michigan, and Texas recognize the accomplishments of undergraduate and graduate students. Commencement signifies the completion of this phase of our students’ educational experience, and it celebrates the beginning of their bright futures. Graduation is one of our favorite times of the year as it is our opportunity to pull out all the stops to celebrate the exceptional accomplishments of our students. We revel in their intellect and passion. We respect their growth. We envy their abundant energy to tackle the challenges of our future. We value the way they embrace the ideas we hold dear at Northwood University – principles that promote a foundational belief in a free and ethical society … in the power of private enterprise … and in the possibilities that come from competitive, productive effort.

And most importantly, we anticipate the future achievements we are certain will follow for our graduates in business, as entrepreneurs, in the non-profit and government sectors, and in communities all over the world. We know our students are well prepared for personal and professional achievement, and we are immensely gratified to know they will be forever linked to Northwood University as they join our proud alumni, a network over 50,000 strong.

Graduates – we wish you unprecedented success on your life’s journey. Congratulations class of 2015!

Have a great weekend!
