[00:00:00] >> Graduations Class of 2020. We're so proud of all of your efforts during this very challenging time. Covid virus: (thumbs down.) Hokie graduates: (thumbs up.) Look deep inside of you during these challenging times and go out and do great things in the world. Ut Prosim is within you. [00:00:17] You are now part of the seven percent of the world's population that has college degrees. As Mike Tyson once said, everybody has a plan until they get punched in the face. Well, we got punched in the face with this virus thing. Really hard. So very proud of how you guys have all handled this. [00:00:33] With the talent, adaptability, and resilience you've shown, you will change the world. As you know, the Hokie Nation is a great community of people and we are so proud that you are a part of that. The world needs more Hokies right now. I wish you all the best and I hope you continue to serve. [00:00:51] Remember, we are Virginia Tech. Go Hokies. Go Hokies. Go Hokies. Go Hokie Nation!
