Congratulations to the Media Studies graduates! I have had the good fortune of teaching many of you over the last few years, and I have loved each semester of working with you. As you move on to the next phase of your lives, I encourage you to, as I often say in class, "pursue your passion." I hope to see you all at your fall graduation ceremony, and please let us know where life takes you!
