Spring International Student Graduation Reception

A celebration for international students graduating this semester will occur on Friday, May 2 at 3:30 p.m. in the RPAC Amphitheater. All international students, along with their family and friends, are invited to attend and be recognized for their tremendous accomplishment.

Graduating students will be introduced at the reception and given the opportunity to share their accomplishments and their future plans after graduation. A photographer from the Office of International Affairs will be taking pictures, but guests are welcome to bring their own camera as well. Graduates are also encouraged to bring their country’s flag to the reception. You can view slideshows of previous graduation receptions here.
