For the UC San Francisco class of 2020, the usual joy and excitement of graduation is mixed with unusual uncertainty. As they reflect on their years at UCSF, graduating students remember the challenges they overcame, the lessons they learned, the enduring relationships they made along the way – and the magic of a good night’s sleep.

And now, perhaps more than ever, this next generation of health care professionals and scientists feel a sense of duty to care for their communities and make the discoveries that will shape our futures. We know they will make UCSF proud.

As we celebrate the #UCSFgrads of 2020, we asked them to share how they’re feeling at this moment, in their own words.
