Congratulations to the Class of 2022

Greetings Graduates,

Congratulations! You did it! We can’t wait to celebrate your amazing accomplishment at this year’s commencement ceremony at the Academy of Music here in Philadelphia!

I speak for all our faculty and staff when I say I am honored to celebrate with you at our 2022 Commencement ceremony. We know the last couple years have been very difficult due to the pandemic, but we are happy to be able to safely come together in person for the first time since 2019. We are also excited to welcome those who will be joining us virtually from across the world.

We hope you enjoy this ceremony, and we wish you the very best as you embark on the next chapter of your lives. Remember, you may have completed your degree, but you will always be a Dragon! You now join our family of School of Education alumni located all around the world. Connect with us via LinkedIn and learn about the many ways you can stay involved with SOE.
