We gather here the names of Psychology Department graduates of 2021 in recognition of their accomplishments. Successfully finishing college and earning a degree is a major life challenge and transformative for so many students. For 2021 graduates, the pandemic dramatically increased this challenge, and yet all of the students below rose to the occasion and through perseverance and will, completed their degrees. The department commends you for your effort and success with special accolades for this achievement in the midst of a global pandemic and complete lockdown of our society and economy. The good news is that the fruit of your labor-- the value of a degree-- has not declined and as we emerge from the pandemic, your newly earned degree will open doors and new paths as you move forward in your lives and careers. We wish you the best in your future endeavors and hope you develop rich, rewarding careers. Congratulations many times over!
