“Like all explorers, we are drawn to discover what’s waiting out there without knowing yet if we have the courage to face it.” Pema Chodrӧn

When you began studies at Sault College, you were explorers, who were brave enough to enter an educational program, not knowing what to expect. Some of you left home to make this journey and many of you overcame huge challenges to complete the expedition. It is my hope, we have helped you realize your strengths and capitalize on your courage to go out into the world and continue your success.

I wish you all the very best of health and happiness.

Marilyn King, Dean, Health, Community Services & Interdisciplinary Studies

The college experience is one that challenged me and one I am glad I had. I hope I never forget the friends, Professors or classes I was lucky to be part of, and take pride in the essays I wrote for film studies, as well as the scripts and short stories I wrote for writing classes. My one regret this year is that my Gradmother Jean Case, who passed in December isn't with us to see me graduate, but I can only hope I did her proud.
