Checking in With Dean Forbes - April 2022

In just under a month, the class of 2022 will walk across the stage at 3M Arena. They will hear from commencement speaker Dr. Mary Kemen and sing along to Hail! Minnesota with John S. Anderson. For the first time in two years, we will be able to send off our soon-to-be graduates as we have done in years past – in person surrounded by their family, friends, advisors and professors.
