[00:00:00] >> The pandemic that has changed the world as we know it has called us to respond in a new way. But that doesn't stop us from coming together virtually from locations across the globe. Music- The Star-Spangled Banner. On behalf of the University, welcome to the Spring 2020 Commencement exercises in this 149th year of the University. [00:00:38] You learned things that nobody else has had to learn before you, no other graduating class so take it forward. You finally get to place your hands on the stitches, it's your time, time for you to get the real world and win. You, the graduating class in 2020, have risen to your country's historic call to service. [00:01:02] Wherever life takes you next, remember that once we go into our dream jobs we are the ones living out Ut Prosim. We have made it, we can celebrate all of our hard work and persistence. I join all people of goodwill wishing you congratulations.
