SPS Celebrates 2016 Graduates
Following Northwestern’s 158th Commencement ceremony at a sun-splashed Ryan Field on Friday, June 17, the SPS 2016 Convocation ceremony was held at Chicago’s Auditorium Theatre. A large and enthsiastic crowd of family and friends filled the ornate and historic venue to celebrate their graduates. SPS Dean Thomas Gibbons honored graduates for their commitment, dedication, and sacrifice. 2016 graduate Heidi Sampang (MSGH) and keynote speaker Lisa Caputo (Medill ’87) shared words of wisdom, inspiration and triumph. As the ceremony closed, SPS graduates were led out of the Auditorium by a bagpiper — an SPS tradition — to begin the next chapters of their lives.
