Congratulations to the Class of 2011!

Now is the season of college graduations and a time to celebrate the accomplishments of our graduates!

The past two days UMass Amherst has been holding its graduations with the undergrad and grad ones taking place yesterday and many of the college and school ones today.

The Isenberg School held its graduation ceremony at the Mullins Center today and it was quite the special event.

Above are some photos of the graduates, faculty, and families.

Special thanks to the families of the graduates and congratulations to the class of 2011!

If you'd like to learn more about what makes UMass Amherst great, please view this video. Some alums brought it to my attention and it was a pleasure to be featured along with such colleagues as Professor Robert Pollin, Kevin Fu, Susan Leschine, and even Sheila Bair, who is stepping down as Chair of the FDIC as of July 1, 2011, and, perhaps, will return to the Isenberg School. Our Chancellor, Dr. Robert Holub, does a great job in the video of extolling the virtues of the research, education, and community at UMass Amherst.
