Congratulations to the Class of 2021! You rock! In honor of the marathon senior year you have had, I am offering the best Marathon Toast I could find in Google: "A marathon is not about winning, it is about completing.

You are almost at the finish line - keep breathing!

Nanette Veilleux

Congratulations Class of 2021!

What a long, strange trip it's been. As seniors, I am so grateful for your leadership during these chaotic times. You were patient with the last minute changes, the months of "not-knowing-for-sure". You were game to try new things, patient with bumbling zoom breakout rooms, gracious as we tried different combinations of synch and asych modules, patient -- did I say 'patient' already? -- with faculty and technology and, finally, kind and generous to first year students who you have never seen in RL.

Plus, in a year of moving and shaking, you lived up to the Simmons tradition of moving and shaking this place! Love it and love you!

Erin DeCurtis

Congratulations Class of 2021! Best wishes for the great things you will accomplish!
