University's 102nd Commencement featured a stirring performance by musician
Peter Yarrow, a pithy speech by Alumnus of the Year rock journalist Ben
Fong-Torres, and more than 4,000 happy graduates.
"I learned that my life was made meaningful when I was
walking the walk of caring about others, when I was devoted to
changing the world so that there was less suffering," said
Yarrow, who also performed "Puff, the Magic Dragon," one
of his signature songs.
ceremony also featured student speaker Nelly Lau, a graduate

STAR: Ray Kuan
Kuan, Web and online forms coordinator for the College of Health
and Human Services (HHS), is a patient man. It's a quality well-suited
for a job that requires helping (often impatient) humans work with
(often frustrating) computers, and it's one of the main reasons
that he is the June STAR of the Month.
is a top-flight employee," said Ryszard Dziadur, director of college
operations for HHS. "A jack of all IT (information technology) trades,
he always goes beyond the call of duty. He considers all faculty,
staff and students to be valued customers and treats them as so.
He is a true professional."
updates the HHS Web site, provides support for the software and
hardware needs of the college, and works to move all of its various
forms from paper to electronic format. Thanks to his efforts, everything
from college travel forms to student pay vouchers can be filled
out online, a step that eliminates problems caused by poor handwriting
is quick to deflect credit to the other members of his IT group
and his fellow HHS employees.
STAR doesn't represent just me -- it represents the whole group,"
he said. "I really enjoy working with people in the college. They
keep me motivated."
San Francisco resident, Kuan earned dual undergraduate degrees --
mathematics and computer science -- at San Jose State University.
He worked for a year at the Port of San Francisco before joining
HHS two and a half years ago. It was a change he was happy to make.
always wanted to work in the academic area and serve students,"
he said. "For me, it's a bigger picture than the port. It helps
the community more."
befits one of the college's underlying philosophies, Kuan is an
active person. He enjoys swimming and playing tennis and loves to
ski. He skis 10 or more times each winter, usually at Northstar
at Tahoe, and dreams of one day skiing Whistler Blackcomb, a world-class
resort in Canada.
