Many of the newly minted UNH alums said Lee's remarks resonated with them.
Rapp said he's "a little bit worried" about finding a position. "It's not the best market right now," he noted.
UNH awarded degrees to 2,268 undergraduates Saturday, along with 488 graduate students. Graduates hailed from 42 states and 17 foreign countries and included 55 veterans, according to UNH staff.
UNH President Mark Huddleston took time in his address to praise international business and economics graduate Komot Gabriel, who lived in war-torn Sudan until he was 7 and spent two years in a refugee camp in Egypt before coming to the U.S. when he was 9. His family settled in Manchester.
Gabriel said he'll start a full-time job at E. & J. Gallo Winery in Manchester on June 30. His cousin, Richard Madol, received a biochemistry degree at UNH on Saturday, after coming to the U.S. in 2002.
"There's a lot of room for growth here," Madol said.
