It was the college's 121st commencement, but the first Steven DiSalvo presided over as president. He thanked the 417 graduates for making his first year special.
The most important thing the students learned over the past four years are the things they learned about themselves, Schieffer said.
"Remember and treasure those who encouraged you to follow your dreams - they are your true friends. And forget those who tried to talk you out of it. They are not worth worrying about," Schieffer said.
"Through all of our experiences, intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, through things we now understand and things we still cannot put into words, we have gained so much," Donovan said.
"It feels great," said graduate Cameron Foster. "I'm so happy to have finally finished up and I'm ready to move on to the next chapter of my life."
