Temple Perseverance Conquers

Message from CST Alumni Board

To the CST Class of 2020:

Congratulations! Today, you are Temple University alumni.

It’s an important milestone, not just for what you have already achieved but as preparation for your future success. As students, you know our university is a special place. You can feel the sense of community among classmates and faculty. As Temple alumni, these bonds grow even stronger.

I urge you to continue to build connections with your Temple community as you move on to the next phase of your lives. The CST Alumni Board—experienced and successful technologists, entrepreneurs, researchers, inventors and more—is a powerful network that you can access throughout your life. We are here to help Temple Owls succeed!

At Temple, I found my passion: geology. It’s a career that I love and something that will hold my interest for the rest of my life.  Something I will never grow tired of learning more about. But as a student I also discovered my enduring commitment to this university and to the College of Science and Technology.

I believe that when you are driven by passion and commitment, you can achieve great things. Not just in your careers, but in your lives and in the lives of people in your communities. Right now, CST graduates must draw upon the remarkable scientific and technical education earned here at Temple to move our world forward.

Your journey ahead will include many successes and, yes, some failure. Days when you are hopeful and days that may seem dark. But it will be your journey, and I know that you ready for what lies ahead. Temple is with you. Your passion will guide you. Believe in yourselves and, I promise you, great things will happen.
