Ohio University conferred more than 870 graduate degrees during its annual Graduate Commencement ceremony Friday morning in the Convocation Center.

Keynote speaker Dr. Jay Ryu, the 2012 Outstanding Graduate Faculty Member, told the graduates to become heroes by following their passion.

An associate professor of public administration in the Department of Political Science and the Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs, Ryu’s research areas are organizational performance, public budgeting and finance.

Ryu said graduates should strive to become heroes in their daily lives and learn how to survive life’s cycles, valleys and peaks. He said in order to become a hero, the graduates must say “nevertheless” to all the frustrations they experience and say “one more time” when everybody else is saying “OK, now the game is over.”
