Spring Commencement

  • June 3, 2013
 

Dreams were realized and academic goals accomplished at the University of La Verne’s Spring Commencement 2013, on Saturday, June 1. Graduates of the College of Arts & Sciences, College of Business & Public Management, and the College of Education & Organizational Leadership were reminded that they will be Leos for life.

As they celebrated with their families and friends, members of the Class of 2013 heard inspirational speeches by esteemed political strategist Joe Trippi and baseball legend Tommy Lasorda.

Three commencement ceremonies honored graduate candidates from the university’s main campus, the Campus Accelerated Program for Adults (CAPA), and the regional campuses and off-campus programs overseen by the Regional Campus Administration (RCA).

“You’ve got to believe you can do it,” Lasorda told his audience. “Dreams can become a reality.”
