I want to express my sincere congratulations to the music students who graduated - class of 2021. Your last year was a challenging year where you had to stay committed to completing what you started out to do 4 years earlier! Uncertainty and instability would have unsettled your learning and your forecast for the future. I believe you used resources that you would not otherwise have used - which is always a good thing in learning to navigate through life. I wish you all the best in your new pathways!

I can’t believe we made it through and always being there for each other. Thank you for always being supportive and creative, and show me the world from different angle.

CONGRATULATIONS!!! You've accomplished so much this past year and over the past four years, and I hope you'll look back on your undergrad years at Queen's with fond memories despite the challenges faced during this pandemic.

I know this moment can feel unsettling, especially if you don't have a clear plan for what comes next. Be open to the possibilities, and in due time, the pieces of the puzzle will fall into place, possibly in unexpected ways. In any case, plans tend to change, and that's OK too! Be willing to be surprised.

I am so grateful for students who showed up during this weird year for virtual discussions, turning their cameras on even if they didn't have to so I could see your faces and nods and smiles, supporting one another, and sharing their ideas with each other.

My hope for this graduating POLS class is that you'll bring the critical thinking, the ability to put yourselves in others' shoes, and the value of diverse perspectives on issues of politics that you learned in your courses into whatever you do and wherever you end up. Nurture these skills, which the world desperately needs right now, because that's what studying politics is all about.

I wish you all the best for what's to come and can't wait to see what you do. Don't be strangers, and keep in touch with your Profs!
