Congratulations spring 2021 graduates!
You put in the time and effort, and it has led to this moment: graduation! While there are no more papers or tests and your diploma will soon be in hand, you are a life-long Sun Devil. Whether you are celebrating in Arizona or across the globe, there are so many ways we are recognizing your big accomplishment. It’s time to put on that cap and gown, you’ve earned it!
