Celebrating the Graduating Class of 2016

Congratulations to the graduates of Sofia University, Class of 2016!

“to live in this world
you must be able
to do three things
to love what is mortal;
to hold it

against your bones knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, when the time comes to let it go,
to let it go”

– Mary Oliver

 Sofia Grad 1
This year marked a very special commencement ceremony with world renowned author, physician, and luminary, Dr. Deepak Chopra delivering the commencement speech to over 250 attendees!
Sofia Grad 4
After sharing a personal story from his childhood, Chopra then connected it to his philosophy on awareness and love.

“Love is not just a mere sentiment. It’s not just a mere emotion, although that’s wonderful. But love is the ultimate truth at the heart of the universe. That kind of love will transform you and transform the rest of the world, or whoever you come into contact with – not because of what you say, not because of what you do, but because of your presence.”

He was also awarded an honorary doctorate degree conferred by university founder, Dr. Robert Frager and university president, Dr. Liz Li.
We wish you all the success and happiness you deserve as you step onto the next stage of your journey. We will miss you!
