At seven commencement ceremonies across three days, members of the University of Rochester's Class of 2017 were celebrated by their family and friends, their professors and by special guests. “The great secret in life is that we can always begin again,” said Arts, Sciences & Engineering commencement speaker Judge Jimmie Reyna ’75. “We can always start over, again, again and again. And if we stop, start again and again and again.”
