MU celebrates the season

This afternoon, we begin our December commencement events. Nearly 2,000 students will graduate over the next two days, and on Sunday we’ll hold three ROTC commissioning ceremonies. Congratulations to all on their hard work and resilience. I can’t wait to see what this class achieves next.

I also want to wish our graduates, students, faculty, staff and alumni a restful holiday season. I hope you’ll join me in cheering on the many student-athletes competing during winter break, including Men’s and Women’s Basketball teams against Illinois and Mizzou Football in the Gasparilla Bowl.

I look forward to celebrating even more Mizzou excellence in the new year.
