Graduating seniors gathered for their Graduation Luncheon and Time Capsule Ceremony with one last opportunity to enjoy conversations with their classmates and faculty.  The seniors chose to hear their “Last Lecture” from Mr. Mearl Sutton, lecturer in the marketing department.  

Sutton encouraged the graduating Falcons to “build their brand” and deliver customer value in their future careers. He also advised the seniors to not stay “frozen in time” and go beyond what they are told. Take initiative to go above and beyond and help others get what they want.

During the luncheon, Dean Ray Braun recognized the finalists for the College of Business’s Karl E. Vogt Outstanding Senior Award, named in honor of a former dean of the College of Business.  The award for 2016 was presented to Margaret (Maggy) Dorian who is specializing in accounting. 

Dorian was a College of Business Student Ambassador,  as well as treasurer and president for Women in Business Leadership, a member of the new Dean’s Advisory Council on Diversity and Inclusion, a mentor coordinator of Falcon Leadership Institute, a facilitator of BGSU Leaders in Residence, a member of the Peer Leader Advisory Council, a participant in the Leadership Certificate Program, a member of National Residence Hall Honorary (NRHH), and vice president of recruitment for Beta Alpha Psi, Alpha Upsilon Chapter. Dorian also received numerous scholarships and academic honors during her college career.

College of Business Student Ambassadors Lauren Diehl and Julia Hoffman spoke on behalf of the 1935 Society asking the seniors to give back to the University and giving $19.35 to the College. 1935 was the year the College of Business at BGSU was founded. By giving this gift the soon-to-be alums will be part of a group of special donors.
