Ultimate Medical Academy – Behind the Scenes of Graduation
Commencement is a special day for our
graduates, it’s also a special day for us. UMA faculty and staff. It’s a time for
us to reflect on UMA’s mission of always putting students first. We meet
students face-to-face for the first time at commencement, we talk with them
about their personal stories and cheer them on as they celebrate their big day.
A lot of work goes into each and every commencement. Our staff personally set the scene at the arena. We make it a celebration with activities like fun
photo booths and selfie stations, a beauty table, a mix and mingle for
students and staff and much more. We do all of this because we know how
important commencement is, we know how much this day means to UMA students, our faculty and our staff. We know everything we do builds toward helping
our students reach this day and then helping them succeed in their healthcare
career afterward and once the crowd goes home, once the
banners come down and stadium goes quiet, we know we have this moment to look
forward to again because we go right back to helping our students through
their education to graduation and into their careers.
