May 2019 Graduates

Here is a snapshot of the May 2019 graduates. This information is self-reported on the final reflection papers in KIN 471/481, and is limited in at least two ways: (1) to the students who were enrolled in 471/481 during the SP19 semester, and (2) to the students who answered the question. (Not all students who submitted a final reflection paper answered the question.) With over 80 students enrolled (471/481 combined), it seems most students who were enrolled did not graduate in May.
