Bloomfield College Honors Student Success at Baccalaureate Ceremony

Bloomfield College Commencement

By Alicia Cook

On Thursday, May 18, 2017, students were honored for their academic achievements at Bloomfield College’s annual Baccalaureate ceremony.
 
Highlighting students who achieved a high GPA while pursuing honor society membership, graduates received honors cords for earning cum laude, magna cum laude, and summa cum laude distinctions. Students also received cords for their work in the institution’s honors societies, with Alpha Chi (all majors), Delta Mu Delta (Business), Kappa Delta Pi (Education), Psi Chi (Psychology) and Sigma Theta Tau (Nursing) bestowing their organization’s highest honor on the group of distinguished academics.
 
Dr. Anita Pasmantier, Professor of Finance and first woman Fulbright Scholar at the College, delivered the Baccalaureate Address.
 
“There will be many people who will inspire you, helping you to move forward and to achieve your dreams,” said Pasmantier. “No one gets to their college graduation without the support of their friends and family.”
 
Dr. Pasmantier then shared with students her background and upbringing. The professor grew up in a one-bedroom apartment in the Bronx with her mother and sister. She recalled taking buses and the subway everywhere as her mother could not afford a car. As a single parent, her mother faced many challenges and difficulties, working fulltime and raising two daughters. Though not earning a college degree herself, Dr. Pasmantier’s mother always stressed the importance of education to her children, and, despite a difficult economic situation, she saw to it that Dr. Pasmantier and her sister received college degrees. Eventually, her mother did attend college herself.
 
“One of the proudest moments of my life was when I had the honor of awarding my mom, who was 56 at the time, her bachelor’s degree from Fordham University,” expressed Dr. Pasmantier.  “It’s never too late to invest in yourself and fulfill your dreams. I stand here before you as an example of where hard work, dedication, and perseverance can take you.  If you come from modest beginnings as my sister and I did, don’t let it get you down.  Your education and hard work will overcome all obstacles.”
 
As a Fulbright scholar, Dr. Pasmantier will be teaching Advanced Corporate Finance at Libera Università Internazionale degli Studi Sociali Guido Carli (LUISS University) in Rome, Italy for the 2018 Spring semester.
