Members of the St. Ambrose University 2018 spring graduating class include 456 undergraduates and 158 master's and doctoral students. They come from 21 states and six foreign countries and each has a tremendous and highly individual story about their educational journey.
Yet, if you listen to the words they use to describe their Ambrosian experience, you'll discover common themes: community, service, discovery, opportunity, support, leadership and dreams fulfilled.
Our graduating class includes students who said they've learned to transform uncomfortable situations into opportunities; the value of immersing into a new culture and service; the deep impact of support, community and family; how to embrace leadership and use power to honor differences; to set goals and persevere; and how their Ambrosian education is allowing them to meet, and exceed, their professional goals.
We've shared their stories below. Congratulations to all of our Spring 2018 graduates.
