pa-grad-08ELEVEN days until graduation! I know some of our students are probably mentally doing the countdown!!

Year after year, our grads make me proud to work here. I know the 430 graduates this year will be awe-inspiring, just like those who have gone before them.

This year is the first to have graduates in the anatomy and biomedical sciences programs. It’s also DMU’s largest graduation to date with 450 degrees being given. More info bout the ceremony.

Courtney Tompkins has been part of the DMU marketing team since Nov. 2005 and loves promoting a school she believes in so thoroughly. Proud daughter and patient of DMU alumni, Courtney knows, first-hand, that Des Moines University is doing a world of good. A fan of all outdoor festivals, fruity drinks and nearly all edibles, she has a hard time narrowing down her list of favorite places to go and things to do but lists the Iowa State Fair as an all-time fave. She loves her 8-minute commute to DMU from Urbandale, a suburb of Des Moines. She and husband Tyler are owned by three large dogs, Tonka, Tucker and Tank.
