Graduation is not the end but is the beginning of a journey, University of the South Pacific's vice chancellor Professor Rajesh Chandra told graduates at the graduation ceremony yesterday in Suva.

Prof Chandra said the walk to success begins for the graduates after the graduation ceremony.

“How will you make a meaningful impact on your society on the achievement that you have made today?”

He said USP only guides graduates to the road to success but it is up to them on how they drive themselves to success.

“Employers are looking for graduates who can solve problems, critical thinkers and have high degree of ethics.”

Prof Chandra said the only problem in Fiji is the way people think which is only based on an inability to move forward.

Pro Chancellor Iqbal Janiff said graduates needs think outside the box.

Janiff also urged the graduates to take the advice of old people as knowledge, wisdoms and words of experience are attached to it.

Prof Chandra told the graduates be  good ambassadors for the school as they will carry the USP brand wherever they go.

Speaking on behalf of the graduates Liah John Kaltoi, a graduate in a post diploma in social policy and administration said they are about to embark their new journey in life to serve their beloved countries.

“Sail on and adjust your sail to finish successfully at your destinations.”

Kaltoi said they came in as strangers but left with something that they will surely cherish for the rest of their lives.
