VSU Announces Summer 2021 Graduates

VALDOSTA — Valdosta State University is proud to recognize the achievement and success of the more than 550 students who earned their degrees during Summer 2021. 

Each of these graduates came to VSU with their own ideas and inspiration, and during their time as a student, they stepped outside their comfort zone, made an impact, created new knowledge, promoted an innovation-oriented culture, and developed the communication skills, connections, and critical thinking necessary to create a success story that's all their own. Today we celebrate this powerful and positive community of Blazers and wish them all the best as they find genuine happiness and fulfillment in their personal and professional lives and use it to empower the people and places closest to them.

"I am incredibly proud of our graduates for having the dedication to overcome countless obstacles, including this ongoing global health crisis, and to finish strong and reach this significant milestone," said Dr. Richard A. Carvajal, president of VSU. "I am similarly so proud of the world-class faculty and staff who supported these students through life-changing teaching, mentoring, advising, research, community engagement opportunities, and much more on their journey to this special day."
