Congratulations! You have made it and we are ready to celebrate with you. After much hard work, the goal you set for yourself is about to be accomplished. The administration, faculty, and staff wish to honor your achievements in several ways leading up to your commencement ceremony.

Your college education has helped you identify goals for your future and values to guide you in all aspects of your life. It is my belief that your degree from Thomas More has prepared you for a lifetime of pursuing personal, spiritual and civic pursuits and provides the support to excel at these endeavors.

You will join in the ranks of over 11,000 alumni of Villa Madonna College/Thomas More College/Thomas More University. I invite you to remain an active member of the Thomas More Community through your participation in the Alumni Association. I believe you will discover an enriching experience when you build on the relationships established throughout your tenure on campus. Many of the alumni I meet speak fondly of their TMU education as being a transformative experience in their life. Those same graduates are transforming the world. It will soon be your turn.

I hope this final semester is good in every way for you. Be assured of my prayers during these final months of your collegiate career.

And remember: All of us at TMU look forward to celebrating in May with you!

Congratulations again,


Acting President Kathleen Jagger
