00:00:23,570 --> 00:00:29,989
"Our four years here at DeSales taught us not
only how to navigate campus but also how

2
00:00:29,989 --> 00:00:35,440
to navigate life." My experience at DeSales has been wonderful. I'm from Jackson

3
00:00:35,440 --> 00:00:39,500
Mississippi. So I came from like hundreds
of miles away.

4
00:00:39,680 --> 00:00:49,300
My experience has been amazing. I've met some amazing people, new friends that I didn't think I was going to have here.

5
00:00:49,540 --> 00:00:53,780
A big part at DeSales here we do Student Life and a lot
of times we all meet different people

6
00:00:53,780 --> 00:00:56,900
that we don't really know. Everyone
really accepts you like a big family,

7
00:00:56,900 --> 00:01:03,860
a second family from home. Coming from Father Judge High School many of the Salesian priests there

8
00:01:03,860 --> 00:01:08,150
were telling us to look at DeSales, look at DeSales.  I almost kind of

9
00:01:08,150 --> 00:01:13,220
brushed them off and then I
finally did and I fell in love.

10
00:01:13,220 --> 00:01:18,170
"Know that no matter what direction you are
coming from, DeSales will always be

11
00:01:18,170 --> 00:01:20,120
home for you to come back to."

12
00:01:20,120 --> 00:01:23,960
Everyone you see is like family here. That's why I chose to come to DeSales.

13
00:01:23,960 --> 00:01:30,000
It's a home away from home and everyone's so nice. I will miss this place for a long time.

14
00:01:30,120 --> 00:01:36,869
"In the words of St.Paul, may your lives be an eternal yes to everything that

15
00:01:36,869 --> 00:01:47,240
is good, true, honorable, right, pure, and lovely.
Congratulations, Class of 2019.
