Class of 2016 Celebrate Last Lecture
"I promised your parents you will be better than you were when they handed you to me and you are."
Gwynedd Mercy University held one of its most treasured traditions on Wednesday, April 20, 2016, Last Lecture. Since 2008, GMercyU seniors have selected a beloved faculty member to address the class one last time. The Class of 2016 chose Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice Patrick McGrain, PhD to deliver this year's address.
Dr. McGrain, or better known as Doc, held back tears as he reflected on the students' time at GMercyU and imparted wisdom on what lies ahead. The topics covered ranged from heartbreak to finding a job, with Dr. McGrain emphasizing that life is hard. Despite life's uncertainties, Dr. McGrain has faith the soon-to-be graduates are prepared.
"Whatever you do and wherever you go, you can handle it," Dr. McGrain said. "You are ready to take life by the horns and succeed."
