New Short Takes Video Looks at Life After Graduation: The Next Adventure
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – At the University of Arkansas, we measure our success with the miles of sidewalks that carry our legacy — the names of our graduates going back more than a century.
And behind that legacy are thousands of journeys to new careers, new entrepreneurial ventures or to the next step in education — like the journey of chemical engineering major Miriam Gonzalez, who will go to work in Jonesboro this summer.
“To me, the ultimate success of a university is when graduates launch themselves into meaningful and successful lives,” said Jim Coleman, provost and executive vice chancellor for academic affairs. “Senior Walk is a pretty powerful reminder that the U of A is built on the legacy of everyone who has been a part of this campus.”
