Every year, Stetson University toasts the graduating class in the President’s Garden during this signature event of Senior Week. President Wendy B. Libby, Ph.D., shared words of encouragement and congratulations on ­­­­­Tuesday, April 23, before offering the Champagne Toast.

The toast celebrates each student’s time as a Hatter and serves to induct them into the Stetson Alumni. Less than a month until Commencement, these seniors are encouraged to embrace what they learned at Stetson and carry it with them as they continue forward.
