Quinnipiac remains committed to celebrating law, graduate and undergraduate Commencement with in-person ceremonies when it is safe to do so. New dates will be shared once they are established.
Dr. Traci Marquis-Eydman, associate professor of medical sciences, medical student home program director and longitudinal integrated clerkship director, urged the graduates to never forget that they must also treat themselves with compassion — which includes nurturing relationships.
"Allow room in your life for connections to others — whether they be family, friends, colleagues, patients, neighbors or even strangers," she said. "Nurture these connections for they will sustain you; they will add to your sense of purpose and your sense of fulfilment. And they will ultimately be your emotional PPE when you need it the most."
She encouraged the graduates to always choose hope — as the hopeful person will always try.
