CONGRATULATIONS, CLASS OF 2009!
Commencement 2009On May 17, more than 10,000 families, friends, and guests traveled from around the corner and around the globe to celebrate the Class of 2009's accomplishments. During his Salute to the Class of 2009, NYIT President Edward Guiliano told graduates that their degrees will help serve as a vaccine against unemployment, and he underscored the fact that NYIT provided them with knowledge capital to handle change.  NYIT's College of Osteopathic Medicine (NYCOM) held its hooding ceremony on May 18, during which the keynote speaker, Marc Hahn, D.O., AACOM/AAMC Scholar-in-Residence, received the Riland Medal for Public Service.
