May 9, 2022 - A message from Chancellor Sobolik to UMSL students

Dear UMSL Students,

As finals week begins, I want to share a quick and heartfelt note of encouragement for all of our UMSL Tritons. You are so close to the finish line. Hang in there. You’ve got this. Know that we are here to support and champion you throughout your academic journey and far beyond as you move forward.

And to our graduating seniors who will soon become proud UMSL Alumni; You have done it!

Through challenges, sacrifice and incredibly hard work, you have navigated your way to this moment in your life showing immeasurable grace and fortitude along the way. You have done the thing you set out to do. And now there is no limit to what you can do next.

Please know I speak for everyone here when I say, we are so proud of you. And we are honored and grateful that you chose our University of Missouri–St. Louis family to be a part of what’s to come next.

Keep going. Be proud. And please keep in touch.

With all my best wishes for a future well beyond expectation,

Kristin Sobolik
University of Missouri–St. Louis
