Titans of Tassel

Congratulations, Class of 2021!

“Our Class of 2021 is among the most perseverant, academically excellent and social justice-minded Titans in history. We are not only proud of their achievements, but we are also grateful for the integral role they played in leading our community through this challenging time.

“Over the past 60 years, all of our more than 300,000 alumni have undoubtedly exhibited untold resilience in achieving their Titan degrees. However, given both the rise of a devastating pandemic and the surge of systemic racism that continues to be our nation’s true plague, it is safe to say that this class has overcome truly overwhelming challenges…and succeeded in achieving their dreams.

They truly epitomize what we mean when we say…It Takes a Titan!”

— Fram Virjee, President
