Marty's Message

Graduation is my favorite day as dean each year. I love the energy and celebration that this day brings to campus. I enjoy watching our students and their families on what is undoubtedly one of the defining moments of their lives. I am proud to congratulate and hand diplomas to each of our CPS graduates.  
What made this day extra special this year was sharing it with Meg Buchmann and Song Xiong (pictured to the left), who have been part of our CPS college staff for the last three years. We were sad to see them off, but we excited for what lies ahead for them, and for all of our CPS graduates. Meg started her career as an interior designer at H.Krueger & Associates in Middleton, Wis., while Song is heading off to Keene State College in New Hampshire for graduate school an a dietetics internship.
 Marty Loy,
CPS Dean
