Transcript Finally. After years of homework, tests, skipped classes, repeats of the classes skipped, exams that kept getting in the way of parties, three different changes of majors (only to end up back with the first choice), and a panicky, jam-packed final semester, thousands of UH students were able to shrug on their gowns, grab their caps, and move forward into the next era of their lives. Graduation was truly one of the few universal goals on this campus of varied ideals and diverse opinions. For some students, the four years spent in classes flew by in a near blur. For others, the five, six, seven or more years here seemed to have lasted an eternity. Many students felt as though they had been here for the larger part of their lives. Some students were receiving an advanced degree, and many of the graduates had been returning students, working while going to school to enrich their lives and, often, the lives of their families. As should be expected from a school with such a notable faculty as ours, the graduation ceremonies boasted some very important commencement speakers, such as Apollo 13 astronaut Fred Haise, who spoke at the Law Center commencement. Following a short video of Haise's experiences as an astronaut, he emphasized in his address that "failure is not an option." General Commencement speaker Jack J. Valenti urged his listeners to choose a career that "stirs your passions." The inspiring words of the various speakers, and the elation that comes from wrapping up one's college years, made the commencement ceremonies especially memorable to the graduates.
