Meet some members of the Class of 2017


They are unified by their Rowan University experiences.

But each member of the Class of 2017 has a different story to share about how they overcame obstacles, achieved success, and discovered their passions at Rowan University.

Representing the majority of Rowan’s schools and colleges, the students profiled here are just a few of the more than 3,200 graduates who will participate in Commencement ceremonies in nine ceremonies over four days, May 9-12.

Congratulations to them--and to all members of Rowan’s Class of 2017.

Well done, Profs!
