NEWSLETTER FOR ALUMNI & FRIENDS                             DECEMBER 2021

Congratulations, graduates! 

The University awarded more than 900 degrees as part of its Winter Commencement last week. We are proud to welcome these graduates, members of the Class of 2022, as the newest members of the Alumni Association!

Samuel Sorbello Jr. ’22 Hon., a successful entrepreneur who was the founder, president, and CEO of Atlantic Coast Freezers, gave the Commencement address and was conferred an honorary degree. He is a longtime University benefactor who supported the development of the state-of-the-art Colleen Sorbello Research Laboratory in honor of his late wife.

We honor our newest graduates for all they have achieved and their limitless potential to make a difference in our world, and we commend them for the diligence and resolve they have shown in reaching this important milestone in their educational journeys.
