Triumphing Through Transitions:

Transition periods, such as entering college or embarking on a new chapter after graduation, can be both exciting and challenging. UC Santa Cruz graduates have not only navigated the rigors of their academic programs but have also embraced the changes and uncertainties that come with transitioning into new phases of life.
