Welcome to the May edition of our eNewsletter. With our spring commencement exercises recently completed, we are excited to watch our new graduates excel and help shape the future of both industry and academia.
Last month, we had the pleasure of sending 160 new graduates out into the world for a lifetime of new adventures and discoveries. Through their undergraduate education at BYU, these young men and women have been well prepared to blaze new trails in their chosen fields, thanks to hours of classroom instruction and a variety of mentored research opportunities.
Many of these graduates have already moved on to exciting opportunities outside Provo that will undoubtedly allow them to expand their horizons and magnify their influence. Some of our students are currently beginning work at prestigious organizations (including Microsoft, the Federal Reserve, and Epic Systems, to name a few), while others will seek advanced degrees from some of the world’s finest academic institutions, such as Harvard, Duke, and Johns Hopkins.
We also had the pleasure of seeing 19 students graduate with Master’s degrees and nine complete their Ph.D. The college is proud of these students and the work they performed during their time at BYU – whether carrying out their own research or overseeing and instructing undergraduate students. We are eager to watch these students put their graduate education to work and contribute to our changing world.
As always, we are constantly looking to provide great opportunities to our students and graduates. Oftentimes, we depend on our alumni and friends to let us know of any internships or career prospects that you might become aware of in your little corner of the world. If you or your employer has any openings for which you think our students might qualify, please feel free to contact Lynn Patten via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We look forward to keeping in touch.
