The 3,728 graduates of Baruch's class of 2007 included Baruchians born in Afghanistan, Zimbabwe, and all destinations alphabetically in between. Students born in Colombia, Sri Lanka, Uzbekistan, and China sat alongside natives of Brooklyn and the Bronx, listening to speakers who urged them to follow their own star, embark on their post-college lives with courage and idealism, and cherish memories of their alma mater.
