Inspirational words from Assistant Vice Provost Matthew X. Fissinger and Valedictorian Hallie Ryan

You are not alone in your journey of self-reflection, discovery, and independence. With the LMU community and fellow peers beside you, the opportunity to live your life of purpose is now.

"The age when a person's life blooms... If there is a special period for identity formation, a time when life events are going to have the biggest influence on the rest of the life-story, this is it." Jonathan Haidt, The Happiness Hypothesis: Finding Modern Truth in Ancient Wisdom
