Many things have changed since LaGuardia graduated its first group of trailblazers over 43 years ago. Back then, 254 students filled Queens College’s Colden Auditorium, eager and ready to flip their tassels over and head full force into exciting futures. But the indomitable desire of LaGuardia graduates to improve their lives, to reach goals they never dreamed of setting and to serve as providers and role models for their families is timeless.The Class of 2013, LaGuardia’s 41st graduating class, each one of them with a unique story - has slightly outgrown that auditorium. LaGuardia’s 41st graduating class, like LaGuardia’s past classes, personifies our legacy of being intrepid. The graduate profiles below are just two examples of the bold, compassionate and independent spirit of LaGuardia.Meet our graduates.The entire LAGCC community congratulates the Class of 2013.
