To celebrate students graduating from the C. T. Bauer College of Business, Associate Dean for Undergraduate Business Programs Frank Kelley, Management Associate Professor Dale Rude and Dean Latha Ramchand wrote the following poem (inspired by “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!” by Dr. Seuss).
Congratulations! Today is your day.
To Make Awesome Happen, You are off and away!
Seems just yesterday you came from near and afar
From high schools like Bellaire, Aldine and Lamar,
Or perhaps a stint at H-C-C, or Lone Star.
From Africa, Azerbaijan and from India a few
Vietnam, and Mexico, and China too,
Graduate students, your second time around
You made awesome happen, your feet on the ground.
You circled the lots to find that tight parking space
Before rushing to class to grab your place
A seat by the window — at Melcher, Cemo and Insperity too!
You made Awesome happen no matter the view.
You challenged yourselves
And your colleagues as well.
Some of you learned to cold call and sell.
Exams and papers, no matter the grade,
Your Facebook pictures showed how you played.
You made Awesome happen, you did it with clout;
Your professors wondered what Snapchat was about.
Graduates, remember — no matter what amazing places you go
Here’s a request, a phrase you should know.
Refer, Recruit and Give back to Bauer,
This will triple your earnings by the day and the hour
Oh, the places you’ll go as you pursue your dream!
Remember where awesome began — it was that Bauer student team.
Stay connected, keep in touch,
Remember, Where Awesome Happens — only at Bauer.
