Letter from the Dean

Dear Class of 2022

You made it! Most hearty congratulations to you on your well-earned graduation! You are in a chosen class for a special epoch in history. Your SOC family is so happy for you, so proud of you, and wishes you a bright and splendid future.

As Michelle Obama once said to youth leaders: “Don’t ever underestimate the importance you can have, because history has shown us that courage can be contagious, and hope can take on a life of its own.”
