International students celebrate graduation

The event was well attended by many international students graduating Spring Quarter, their families and friends. Each graduating student was introduced by name, called forward to be recognized and presented with an Ohio State global lapel pin in honor of their accomplishment, and information was shared about the benefits of staying connected through The Ohio State University Alumni Association. Many graduating students brought and displayed a flag of their country at this and the other commencement activities during the memorable weekend.

Immediately following the reception students proceeded to the Oval to experience the new tradition of Commencement Eve Candlelight Ceremony. The ceremony included an address by a graduating student, the President of The Ohio State University E. Gordon Gee, and Alumni Association President Archie Griffin, and ended with a candlelight rendition of Carmen Ohio.

The Office of International Affairs and The Ohio State University congratulates all international students graduating Spring Quarter 2008, and looks forward to hosting an International Student Graduation Reception in future quarters.
