Let me add my congratulations to. The class SUNY, Purchase 2018. Congratulations. Now. First I'd. Like to announce my class gift, I have a gift for you, mm-hmm. Just. Listen.
You're. A tough group I know. It's. Hard to pay for college isn't, it and. Graduate. School if you're poor the federal government, helps you out that's good but, what about the middle class. So. A few, years ago I wrote a law that said you are your parents whoever's. Paying for college can. Take as a full tax credit. $2,500. Off their, federal, taxes, every. For every year, you pay tuition college. And graduate. School. Provided. Washington. There's always a provided, provided. Your family, income is below. $200,000. A year so, if. You come from a family that makes below, 200,000. Make, sure you or mom or dad takes. That tax credit, last, year about 1/4 of all the people who are entitled to it didn't do it because it's new if you forgot even last year or the previous two years you, can fill out a simple form with, the IRS and get, a check of up to. $7,500. Back in the mail. Not. A bad class gift. Now. Graduates. What, happens if you come from a family that makes. Above. $200,000. A year. God. Bless you I. Want. To say a word to the moms and dads there I know, how you feel a few, short years ago my wife iris, and I sat where you did, watched. Our daughter come up on the platform get. A diploma it was one of the greatest days of our lives and, you know these days as you know raising kids isn't easy and maybe you will like us you think back to the tough times we, thought back Jessica, was four months old she had a hundred six and a half fever, we rushed it to the hospital we didn't think she'd make it praise. God she, did we. Then put her I'll remembered, when we put her on the kindergarten, bus for the first time as the, bus pulled away she. Ran to the back of the bus waved, out the back window tears, streaming, down her little cheeks but. When iris went to meet her on the buses return it to a clock she bounded off the bus happy as could be she. Said mommy I came back. When. We talked to her that night we realized what was going on in her little brain she thought that was it no, parents, no brother and sister, new room new house new family. Then. We remember Jesse as a teenager, when. She didn't say much to us and when she did we didn't understand, a word she said and then. Moms and dads you, see his sons and daughters come upon that stage get that diploma and become, an adult before.
Your Very eyes let's hear it for the moms and dads job, well, done. One. More word of thanks, one, more word of thanks so. We're having a great afternoon here. But. As we speak there are young men and young women many your age many from this community, this area, who. Have enlisted in our armed forces, they, are overseas, many. In dangerous, places Iraq, Afghanistan they. Are risking, their lives for. Our freedom our. American, Way of life let's have a round of applause for them as well. Now, to. This great class SUNY, Purchase 2018. You. Are. Graduating. At a time. Of enormous, change, across. The country, around the world profound. Economic change. Profound. Social change, the world is moving so very very fast for. Instance in the old days when you graduated, from college the. Odds were pretty high that you'd have the same job or at least work in the same field for the next 40 years that's. Not so true anymore many. Of you will have several jobs a good, number several, careers. Along. With those economic, changes, the, Internet has put so much information at your fingertips, it's. Sometimes, hard to figure out what's important, and to, distinguish, between what's, true and what, is not, even. Around the world there are all kinds of changes many not for the better, when, I went to college words like terrorism and mass, shootings were, not even heard of. So. The, times are tough they're changing, they're different but, here's the good news your. Generation, is, better equipped to. Adapt to and cope with these new changes than any generation before, you first. You've gotten a great education only, about one third of all the young people your, age will get any degree, and you. Have gotten a degree, that's better than just about any other one so, you've gotten a great education of, course, you have families, that will always have your back through thick and thin and one, other advantage you have you're. The first generation, to be born into all this new technology you. Know your parents your teachers me we, try to get used to it but, you were born into a technology to you is like water. Is to a fish you've been swimming in at your whole lives so, for. Those three reasons and, many others your. Generation, is better equipped to. Overcome. The obstacles. This new world presents. Better. Equipped to seize all the opportunities. That this, new world presents and better. Equipped, to pursue your passions. Dream. Big dreams and maybe. Even accomplish, big things, but. Right now sitting, in your seats you, may not be so sure what's gonna come next with. So much of the world changing, it may, feel sometimes like you're jumping, into an abyss but. The key graduates, is, not to fear change or, fear the unknown it's. To embrace it it's, to relish it it's, to soak it up don't. Let one setback no, matter how overwhelming it, seems, stand. In your way because. If you embrace change, and don't. Let fear of failure deter. You the. Odds with. Your advantages. The odds are very high you will succeed now. How do I know these things, well, I experienced things like this when, I was graduating. About. Several. Decades back when I was seated at graduation, I had, just learned that I had won a scholarship to. Travel all around the, world all. Expenses. Paid for. A whole year for. Me it was the opportunity of a lifetime I was a kid from Brooklyn I had never been out of the country before. But. Graduates, at. The same time I, met. A girl and I. Fell in love. So. Class I had to decide, do. I go around the world on the all-expense-paid, scholarship. For a whole year, or.
Do I stay, home with the girl my first true, love class. Of 2018, what would you have done. President. Schwartz the class is divided, I. Stayed. Home with the girl. There's, some romantics. Over there clapping. Don't. Clap yet' the story unfolds. That. Summer she went on a brief vacation and, I went to the airport to meet her on her return as soon. As she, got off the plane I saw. By. The look on her face. Something. Was, the matter she. Dumped me by Labor Day. There. I was no. Scholarship. No. Trip around the world. No. Girl I. Said. To myself what. A loser, you. Are hang. It up nothing. That good is ever gonna happen you're, never gonna get anywhere and in, fact I stayed in my house for several months moping around, felt, sorry for myself but I. Overcame. It I touched. It myself off in a few years later I found myself seated, a graduation, once again this time from law school but. On the way home from law school I told, mom and dad I was not going to join the fancy, law firm like we had planned I told, him I loved politics, I told. Them my dream was to run for office even. Though the chances of winning, seemed. Remote, my. Parents, were shocked. My, mother was particularly, disappointed, you see I came, from a working-class family my. Father was an exterminator never went to college we never had much money and the, law firm was paying $400. A week which in those days was, more money than my family, had ever seen but. My. Dream was to run for office and so that summer, in fall, against. Very long odds I ran, for the New York State Assembly and I had three opponents first. There was the party machine candidate. Then. There was a neighborhood activist, but. Then there was my mother who was telling all her friends not to vote for me. She. Did. So. She says, she said I get this dumb idea, of being a politician out, of your big food could, well. Graduates. A few, years earlier I sure as heck didn't get that girl, but. That November, I won, the, election, so. To, the graduates, SUNY. Purchase 2018. On this, day of your great achievement, my, advice for you is take the risk don't. Let fear of failing deter, you you, know for those of us who've gotten a little older and we look back on life one. Of the most difficult things to look back on is what I call the what-ifs, what. If I had only done that what. If I had only gone there. So. My advice to the class of 2018 is simple go. For it you're. About to cast off into the unknown. Admittedly. It, can sometimes seem scary, but. You've got great assets, great. Education. Great families. Knowledge of technology, so. Garner up your courage. Garner. Up your strength put. Aside your doubts, take. A chance and if. You do it. Is not only my hope, it's. Not only my prayer it. Is indeed my confidence, that, you each, of you will. Find true success, and true. Joy in life. To. This great class SUNY, Purchase 2018. Congratulations. Good. Luck, Godspeed. And, don't forget go, for it. And, when you get a chance again go on the scholarship. Thank, You senator. I. Think. His, advice is. Right. On and I. Want to couple it with some. Thoughts that. Will. I think carry, you forward. On. April 30th, the New York Times ran a full-page article. Entitled. After, prairie. Fires. Strangers. Shall send, help, in bales. The. Article, was about trucks, of hay that were delivered to ranchers, in Oklahoma. If the, wildfires, have burned the Prairie. Without. The hay these ranchers, would not have been able to feed their cattle.
That. Hay came from as far as Michigan more. Than a thousand, miles away, sent. By ranchers who, didn't know the Oklahoma, ranchers, it. Was free as one. Of them said it's, just what you do. What. Struck me about the article, were two things. The. Sending, of the free hay was a much bigger story, in The New York Times than, the wildfires, had been and. Second. How the free hay reminded. Me of what, I have seen on this campus, for years. Purchase. Students, coming, to the aid of purchase, students, whether. Known to them or not. What. Tied the ranchers, together from all over the, country, was. Only, that they were all ranchers, very. Few knew the ranchers, they were helping. Here. Of course on the purchase campus, more often, students, do know each other, but. I realized, that when I step back from the existing, student. Body and look. At those who came before the. Alumni there. Is more of a parallel. Purchase. Students, help purchase students. And purchase alumni, help, purchase alumni. As well, as students, who, they do not know I have. Seen time and again students. Getting internships, or. Jobs with. Purchase alumni, whether. In the arts or elsewhere. And their, only connection was purchase, just. Like the ranchers, out west whose, only connection. Was ranching. You. Have helped and supported each, other here many times, both. In good times and most recently, in tragic. I am. Constantly, moved, to see how you support, each other in your senior projects, and, presentations. How. When you believe there has been an injustice to one you. Rise to the occasion together. You. Are about to join the purchase alumni, a group of 26,000, people in, the, arts in business. In education. All. Over the country, and indeed, the world, you. Need to continue to reach out and support, each other use. LinkedIn, and other. Social media, to find Purchase, alumni, who. Are in professional, fields you. Want to join or cities, in which you want to live I think. You will find that they will be happy to help, don't. Think that this little act of reaching out is inconsequential. Just. Making the contact, could, have life-changing consequences. A. New, friend a job. Even, a partner. Small. Acts often, have large consequences. And. Now that you are about to be alumni our. Alumni, office is available to help you as well a bail. Is, straw, bundled, together, you. Two are bundled, together by. Our connection, to purchase, and. If you send bails to someone, you don't know who. Knows what. You may get in return so. When you take senator schumer's advice to, reach for it recognize. That you can reach for it with help of your fellow alumni, thank. You and god bless you. Help. Where, are the certificates. Where. Are the certificates. They're. On a table. There on the table. David's. Gonna hand it to me. Okay. I got help. See, what you can do with a little help from their friends. It. Is the tradition, of the Academy. To. Honor individuals of. Preeminence, influence.

And, the, rest of my, yo P family, here at SUNY, Purchase a, Purchase. College I come. From a neighborhood that. Few people can say they grew up to become a lawyer a judge. Or even an Assemblywoman. But. I wouldn't say that I am an exception, to any rule I am. Just an example, of what, greatness. Can. Come out of that little neighborhood in Brooklyn we know of as Brownsville, I. Can. Honestly say, that I owe a great deal of that to AOP. Where. Many. People, counted, me out before. Giving, me a chance, ELP. Handed. Me the opportunity. That propelled, me to where, I am today, and. One of the things that I love to say is that they. Thought that they could bury, me but, they didn't realize that. We were seeds. This. Commitment, is, more. Than just a celebration, even. Though you have a lot to celebrate it. Is about empowering one another because. Each and every one of you are the, future of this great country, we. Have to work together for the advancement. Of one, another and the advancement. Of our communities. And if. Everyone is moving forward, together collectively, then. Success, and triumph. Can. Take care of itself just, a, few years ago I walked the halls of Purchase College I, was. Focused, and determined and, when I when I was a little girl I wanted to grow up to be the best, actress, that the world has ever seen. But. As many of you know and. What, you will learn as you go off and do amazing things, the. Path that you plan to walk isn't. Always the path you, are destined, to walk as, this. Chapter finishes. And another, one begins, do. Not be discouraged with, the journey when. The journey gets tough you, never, know where the, role may, take you as the. Great President, Obama, said, the. Cynics, may be the loudest voices, but. I promise. You they, will accomplish, the. Lease god. Bless you and congratulations. To the facets on. It. Is now my pleasure to, introduce the, 2018. Senior. Class speaker, Alex. Lally. Alex. Is a design, tech night technology. Major in the conservatory. Of theater arts and, and, and.
A. Three-sport, athlete, Alex. Hello. And welcome purchased, faculty, staff, administration. And family. Friends. And my, fellow graduates, I come. From a small country town called, sunny Belle in the big state of Texas so, you can imagine what a culture shock the real time it was for me when, I first walked on to the purchased campus in 2013, it. Was one your time and this Texas girl had only seen snow a handful, of times this. Is way before I heard the term thundersnow. Snowmageddon. Or snowpocalypse. The. Two days I was here visiting is a blizzard, with, a total, accumulation. Of 3, inches. But. That was their doesn't scare me and I found love that everything purchased and I committed before I even flew back home I was. Ready to make my mark on the world over. The course of my time here I've had some amazing professors and, I've met some life-changing people, however. There's one instructor, who, has made a big impact on how I've lived the past four and a half years, that, would be Peter Polinski, an academic. Advisor in leave izing Center and himself a proud Purchase, grad. I had, Peter for my college writing class freshman, year and I will be honest like most freshmen college, writing was not my favorite class. But. During one class when I'd been half asleep through most of it we, were talking about Frederick Nietzsche and that's, when I heard the phrase live, life as a work of art that. One phrase woke, me up and I started to really pay attention to what was being said, Peter. Had us talked about what we thought Nietzsche meant and we, discussed, how you can actually live like a piece of artwork the. Way I see and now the moment, you are born you are a blank canvas and as, you live your life your picture is being painted that. Means that the good the, bad and even the ugly are painted, on this canvas for all the world to see, therefore. Every decision you make whether, it is in private or public, is painted, on this canvas that is your life, that. Class changed, everything, for me it made, me realize I want my life my, artwork, to be colorful to, be beautiful, I want, to be able to show people with, pride how, I've overcome hard, times how. I don't let people or things define, who I am, I've. Always been one to want to do everything I possibly can. And this, quote live, life as a work of art made. Me realize that it's not important, to do everything. But it's important, to give a hundred percent to everything, you do. Purchase. Has given me the opportunity, to do just that, I've been, an assistant set designer for four plays a set, designer for three, I've played, three different varsity sports. Purchase. Is a place where you can fit in no matter what crazy, thing you are into I am. A volleyball player a swimmer, a lacrosse. Player an artist. A designer and. Yes, even, a professional, mermaid. Yeah. Purchase. Has also been a place of growth I've, spent five years finding. Out what, it is I believe, in and finding. Out what it is I believe it and being. Open to change like, changing your major which, for me had been not once but twice. Coming. From a small conservative. Texas town I really, had to learn to think wide open I've learned. About politics, preferred, pronouns, gender, identity drag, shows and sexuality, I have. Created a family here I have friends in different majors from. Different backgrounds, with different points of views and I wouldn't change it for anything. As. A class we have seen and been seen, and been a part of the world's changes, we. Have had the first woman presidential. Candidate speak on our campus.
Participated. In the black lives matter protest, the. It's on us in me two movements. We. Are a community, of artists. Athletes, musicians. Scientists. Filmmakers. Historians. Philosophers. Dancers. And we all have come together to make our art work better, we. The class of 2018, are part of purchases, masterpiece, together. We, are proof of purchase so. Go out there and make your art make. The most of every opportunity you, have and if you fail and fall down that's, okay, get, up learn, from it and move on as Nelson. Mandela said it, always seems impossible until, it's done so. Think back on all those hard times the. All-nighters, you pulled the, times you thought you couldn't finish it whatever. That it might have been for you and look, where you are sitting now the. Finish line is within our grasp and we are about to cross it all, of us together, so. Congratulations. Class of 2018. We. Will now proceed with the conferring, of degrees. Mr.. President. As, Provost. Of Purchase College I have, the honor on behalf of the administration, faculty. And, staff to. Present to you the college's 2018, degree candidates, and I ask with pride that you confer, upon them the, degrees which they have earned and to which they are entitled I. Would. Respectfully invite Elizabeth, Robertson. Member. Of the Purchase College Council, to join you in the presentation, of degrees and. Assisting.

Years ago an incoming freshman, from, the class of 2018 was, given a brick at orientation a symbol.
