Congratulations on your graduation! You are all such talented individuals and I am confident that we will see great things from you in the future. As you prepare to move on to the next chapter in your lives, be sure to remember the lessons, skills, and most importantly, the relationships that you gained while in QUEST and at the University of Maryland.

Dear graduating seniors,

Congratulations! You’ve completed your QUEST student experience, you’ve earned your diplomas, and you’ve done so much to benefit the QUEST program and the University of Maryland, as a whole. While I’m sad that we won’t get to see each other in Van Munching Hall as often, I am so excited to welcome you to our alumni community! Be sure to keep us updated as your amazing futures unfold!

Dear Cohort 17:

Congratulations on your tremendous accomplishments over the last three years!  We appreciate your energy, your ideas, and the many other contributions you have made to the QUEST program.  Your hard work not only helped you learn but also helped many others.  The road bends, and we cannot see too far ahead, but I hope that you will continue to learn from, serve, and love those with whom you travel.

~Dr. Jeffrey W. Herrmann

Congratulations Cohort 17! You are the first cohort I have had the pleasure of seeing through the entire QUEST experience, so your graduation is definitely bittersweet!

I wish you great success and encourage each of you to follow your heart even when it leads to the road less traveled.

Dear Cohort 17,

Now the fun really begins! Remember when we surprised you by making you present to KPMG on your first day of 490? We hope that these experiences helped prepare you for all the challenges you’ll face in the “real world.” Some students find they have a bit of a bumpy landing when they graduate – you’re on your own, and your friends aren’t surrounding you the way they did in college. Don’t worry! It’s important for you to move on to new things so you can grow and adapt. And in a few years time, you’ll love the new path you’re traveling. We’re always here for you at QUEST to grab a coffee, have lunch, and chat when you need us. Best wishes – we’re so proud of what you’ve done as Terps, and we can’t wait to see what new trails you blaze. I’m proud, too, to be part of the class of 2012 with you!

Love, Nicole
