By President Glenn Cummings
As another academic year comes to a close, I want to thank every one of our students for making USM the special university it really is. Of all ages and from all backgrounds, you truly make us the University of Everyone.
I look forward to seeing most of you again in the fall as you continue on your path to success and as we continue to strengthen and expand our academic programs and upgrade our facilities. There could not be a more exciting time to be here.
To our graduates, I sincerely wish you the best of success. And I thank you for your incredibly generous class gift of $5,000 to our Student Emergency Fund. There is not a better way to support future USM students!
Allow me, too, to be the first to welcome you to the USM Alumni Association. As new alumni, you join a group 52,000 strong, serving in leadership and key positions across our state and region. As you take your place here in Maine or elsewhere, be sure to stay connected through our Alumni Association. It’s the best way to stay in touch and enable us to support you as you move forward in your careers.
Whether you are concluding your first year or your last year here, thanks again for choosing USM and being a valued part of our community. Have a great summer!
