Post-Graduation Tool Kit


Congrats, #BearGrads! You’ve stayed up all night studying, passed GEP 100, waited until 11:59 p.m. to turn in your assignments, and had ramen noodles and chicken nuggets for the last four+ years. It’s now time to strut your stuff across the stage and share your accomplishments with your friends and family. All the work you’ve done to get to this day has now paid off, and it’s time to start #adulting.
