A Letter from the President
Dear Graduates and Families:
Congratulations on reaching this important milestone! You have worked hard to achieve your goal of completing your program of study, and we at SUNY Canton are now preparing to commemorate your achievements at the 107th Commencement on May 9, 2015. At this ceremony we not only award diplomas, certificates, and awards, we also celebrate your extraordinary accomplishments and the commitment of time and resources that students and their families, as well as faculty and staff, have devoted to helping get us to this momentous place. You should be very proud – I know we are.
We are also proud of the way SUNY Canton has grown and developed in response to the changing needs of our students, the educational environment, and our economy. We strive to prepare our students for a successful new start, whether that is moving into productive careers or continuing education. The purpose of the Commencement ceremony is to officially usher you into this exciting new chapter in your lives.
The Commencement ceremony is a special event that requires a great deal of planning and careful attention. We have several resources to help you prepare for this special day. This information can be found at the links listed throughout this guide and at our commencement webpage; you should find answers to frequently asked questions by students, families, guests, and faculty. Please take a moment to read through this information carefully.
As President, this will be my first time presiding over Commencement at SUNY Canton. I consider it an honor and look forward to celebrating with you.
