I extend my congratulations to Illinois Institute of Technology’s Class of 2016 and Class of 2017 upon the completion of your degrees. Achieving this milestone is a significant accomplishment, and your work as a student will pay great dividends in the future. As a graduate of IIT, you should take pride in your achievement, which also extends to your family.
The demands on IIT students are heavy, and I hope this experience has given you a sense of intellectual accomplishment as well as personal growth. I encourage you to stay in touch with the Office of Alumni Relations. Each year you are invited to “come home” to IIT for a homecoming celebration, at which we honor alumni with traditional events and activities.
On behalf of Illinois Institute of Technology’s Board of Trustees and the university community, welcome to Commencement 2016–2017!
Alan W. Cramb
