The class of 2010 graduated with pride this morning as they walked across the stage and received their diplomas. Their hard work and dedication finally paid off and now they are ready to face the real world. Most of the students were happy and excited, however there were a few students who were nervous about finding a job in this economy. As an alumni, my advice to the 2010 class is to never give up. Find something that you are passionate about and strive to make it your career. There will be days where you will feel discourage, but don’t let it get you down. Always remember that Whittier has prepared you to achieve any goal you desire. You are in control of your destiny.
