Anticipation, excitement, and happiness were in full effect among our 18 College Experience (CEP) seniors, all dressed up in their caps and gowns at their graduation ceremony inside Albany’s MVP Arena.

Throughout commencement on Saturday, May 11, they participated right alongside their peers at The College of Saint Rose. Each of their achievements in the program led to these moments of celebration.

Our seniors learned invaluable skills through their classes and internships, growing more independent with each passing semester. They learned to cook their own meals, plan social events, do their own laundry, and succeed in the workplace. While this graduation was tinged with sadness, since Saint Rose is shutting down, it was overwhelmingly a day of celebration. We are thrilled to now officially begin our new partnership with Russell Sage College, and move CEP forward for many years to come. The future is bright for the program and its alumni, now over 200 adults strong.

Congratulations to the Class of 2024! We are very proud of your accomplishments and hope you will always cherish the memories made during your college years.
