“Congratulations to the Class of 2024! We’re excited to join these graduates in celebrating their hard work and to welcome them to our alumni family,” UToledo President Gregory Postel said. “As UToledo graduates, this class has a strong foundation for future successes and will join a network of support spread across the globe. We can’t wait to see what they’ll do next.”

Below are just two of the many outstanding graduates joining the ranks of our UToledo alumni network:

Robin Green

Green first came to UToledo to learn more about business. Now at the age of 49, Green is set to graduate this spring with her bachelor of arts degree in interdisciplinary studies.

“My BA in Business provided the practical skills needed to run a company and the inspiration and vision to use those skills for a greater purpose,” she said. “It set the path to co-owning a community behavioral health agency, blending my business expertise with a commitment to serve and make a difference in my community.”

The health agency, One Me to Be, seeks to help young adults in minority communities receive the care they need, advocating for equitable access to resources and promoting holistic well-being in the community.

“I wanted to do more because I saw a need for African American therapists in our community,” Green said. “I partnered with three other ladies who also shared the same passion. We wanted to build an agency that caters to not only minorities but all young adults suffering from mental and drug addiction.”

With the help of UToledo, Green will be able to take her passion for helping others further and continue to support her community through her business expertise.

Peter Tsatalis

Peter Tsatalis and his sister, Dr. Andrea Tsatalis ’17, ’17 have a close bond; so close, in fact, that he is pursuing her career in dentistry nearly a decade apart. Andrea graduated with honors from UToledo with a bachelor of arts degree in biology in 2017. Now, Peter is finishing his bachelor of arts degree in biology this semester.

But his sister was not the only inspiration that led him to UToledo. During the application process, Tsatalis said he “was very impressed with the ample opportunities provided by UToledo: research opportunities both on Main Campus and at UTMC, the UToledo/Case Western Pipeline dental program and a diverse array of clubs.”

“The excellence of education present at UToledo, the challenging material, and the instruction by quality professors enabled me to grow as a student,” he said. “I am confident that my academic pursuits at The University of Toledo have laid a strong foundation for future academic success in dental school and beyond.”

Following graduation, Tsatalis will pursue his doctorate of dental surgery degree at the Ohio State University College of Dentistry, just like his sister did almost a decade ago. Perhaps he’ll even join her in Tampa, Florida, where she works as an endodontist and lecturer.
