Congratulations on your academic achievement at TRU.
We recognize that despite these times of major change, anxiety and uncertainty, you have persevered and worked hard to complete your educational journey. We are so proud of your accomplishments and invite you to stay connected.
The end of school has been so very different this year and we realize that it may feel too soon to leave campus and say goodbye to friends, faculty and the university where you grew so much. Under normal circumstances, transitioning out of university is more gradual, shared and celebrated alongside your classmates. But this year, as your last semester came to a close and your final exams written, you likely did not have a chance to say goodbye and come to terms with the end of this chapter in your life.
We are truly sorry you have lost this special time and we are here to support you. The alumni office has programs to help you stay connected, build networks and enhance your career strategies. There is something for everyone.
Whatever your future holds, know that graduation does not represent the end of your connection to TRU. We have helped prepare you for your next chapter and we want to follow your story. Our alumni office has programs supporting you and helping you stay connected not only to us, but also other alumni, classmates and the friends you made along the way.
The group of TRU alumni you are joining stretch across the globe. Today, TRU is represented in 87 countries. I encourage you to engage with your global community of TRU alumni – stay connected and find strength and support in uncertain times.
TRU has seen continued growth for the past 50 years, since its inception as Cariboo College in 1970. You will always be part of the TRU community and we will always celebrate your achievements.
As a new graduate, you might not have much money to give. The amount, however, is not what matters most. Overall, the most important thing is that once combined, every single dollar makes a difference. As one of your classmates said when speaking to a group of donors last fall, “Your gift can be anything, but it means everything.” That’s true. If a donation is not an option right now, consider beginning with a gift of time. Volunteers are important and highly valued by the Foundation.Make a gift online
Again, congratulations on reaching this remarkable day and best wishes.
You are alumni for life.
