Congratulations to the 100 graduates of the Class of 2017 at St. Francis College. Winter commencement ceremonies were held at St. Charles Borromeo Church on Jan. 9.

Dr. Houlihan, interim president, opened the ceremonies with a tribute to President Dugan, who passed away in December, and said, “He was born and raised in Brooklyn to an Irish immigrant family and never forgot his roots. The college was a place he saw as a home away from home.”

Christine Muraco, ’17, valedictorian, graduated from the five-year accounting program and is the first in her family to attend college. She said, “When I saw an opportunity, I went for it. I jumped on any chance I had to learn more and better myself. That is an extremely important lesson in life. You have to go for things, seize opportunities, live life to the fullest.”

Also graduating the program was Kelsey Papanicolaou.

The Commencement Address was delivered by Dr. Evelyn A. Wolfe, professor and chairwoman of the Department of Chemistry and Physics.

She cautioned the graduates and said, “The education you receive at St. Francis College is your toolbox. And it is wise to fill it with as many different tools as possible.”

Other graduates included Sr. Mary Diep Vu, a psychology major and member of the Duns Scotus Honor Society; Mazaharul Islam, a biology major; Christina Somma an education major; and Frank Jankowski is a communication arts major with a concentration in digital media.
