Grad Dec 23 5314What does it mean to graduate? This is a question many Life University (Life U) students are answering today.

Many of us have pictures from our childhood “graduating” from preschool standing next to proud, smiling parents. We just thought it was a fun day to play with our friends and eat cake, but to our parents, it was the beginning of our educational career that they would continue to treasure. Each milestone, from elementary school to high school and today at Life University (Life U), marks your accomplishments over your educational career that bridge the gap from adolescence to adulthood and, while at Life U, from college student to college alumni.

So, take a moment to soak in those beautiful moments over your years here at Life U. Remember who supported you through all your ups and downs – your family, friends, professors and Life U staff who work countless hours to ensure your success and breathe in your success as you celebrate your latest milestone.
