To the Class of 2021,

I know the past year was not what you imagined when you began your journey at FAU, and I want to commend you for adapting to this unprecedented way of life. The fact that you are graduating is proof, of course, of your intelligence — but perhaps more importantly, it speaks to your resilience – a trait that will serve you well throughout your life.

You succeeded in becoming one of the most educated people in the world, during one of the most challenging times in recent history, and your legacy will serve as an inspiration to future generations, who will look to each of you as examples — of determination and creativity — in overcoming adversity.

Congratulations, Class of 2021.

We are very proud of you,

President John Kelly
