RMC Grads Look Forward to What's Next

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS - Rocky Mountain College's 132nd Commencement celebrated the achievements of students, who say they are looking forward to the future.

"It's overwhelming," said Cody Halverson, a biology major. "I can't believe how fast the last four years went"

"I'm excited, really nervous, really surreal right now," said Heather Smith, a communications studies major. "I'm glad I made it in just four years but I'm going to be a little upset not being able to see these people everyday but I'm happy. I'm excited."

Hundreds of Rocky Mountain College grads gathered in Fortin Education Center. Families looked on excited for their students.

"This has probably been the most amazing two years of my life," said Matthew Strickland, an exercise science major. "I couldn't ask for a better experience so I'm just enjoying it right now."

They say the education has prepared them to take on challenges.

"They're just in constant contact with me," said Katherine Cerda, who's graduating with a communication studies degree. "They helped me develop my sense of what I want to do, helped make sure I knew who to talk to and get connected into this field."

Students say they are sure to cherish these memories.

"I'm content with being done with school but at the same time I'm going to miss all my friends that I've made in Billings," Strickland said. "It's a bittersweet feeling but I'm also happy. I'm ecstatic."

Congratulations graduates!
