“I was going to pass along some sage advice to you as you graduate; instead I'm just going to make this observation. Some of you were born shortly before 9/11, you lived through a major recession, and you're graduating during an unprecedented time where a global pandemic has cut short your final year. 
If anyone is ready to take on the world - it's you.”

Sharon Hwang (BSEE '90)
President-Elect, Illinois ECE Alumni Board
