EPPS Graduates Celebrate Their Accomplishments

Members of the EPPS Class of 2014 joined with hundreds of family members and friends to celebrate their UT Dallas graduation at the spring commencement ceremony. Commencement speaker Megan Simons, who graduated magna cum laude with a bachelor of arts in political science and a bachelor of arts in criminology, urged graduates to take pride in their accomplishments.

"So as you take that next leap, I urge you to remember what you learned at UT Dallas. Think outside the box. Cut your own path. Never give up. Be kind to others. Be true to yourself. And above all, take pride in who you are and be confident of your success, because we are UTD. We are Comets: one in a million, exceptionally bright, and glorious to behold."
