Students at St. Ambrose are one step closer to the American dream. Today was their graduation.
"I guess they've just really taught me a lot of stuff to get me going out there and get me moving on to my job and the rest of my life."
Thousands of people flooded the I wireless center to show support for their loved one.
We talked to one student, Elisabeth, and she says she's excited and proud of her accomplishments at Ambrose.
Elizabeth is an elementary education major with a special education endorsement.
She's looking forward to her next step in her journey.
"I've been applying for jobs, so hopefully I'll get a job soon and teach for the rest of my life."
