Afrikan American Affairs and the 2017 Black Graduation Planning Committee cordially invites you to participate and/or attend this year’s Black Graduation Ceremony and Reception. Black Graduation is an annual program that gives graduates the chance to commemorate and cherish all the accomplishments, memories, and challenges throughout their college years. Furthermore, it is an occasion for parents and families of graduates to meet with Black faculty and staff to gain a greater insight on the journey of their students. Registration for Black Grad has commenced.

Latinx Graduation


Where: Gregory Gymnasium
When: May 18, 2017; 6:00-9:00 p.m.

Presented by Latino Community Affairs, Latinx Graduation is a one-of-a-kind event in which we emphasize that graduation is not meant just for the student, but for their loved ones as well. Latinx Graduation is celebrated in both Spanish and English. The graduating student has the privilege of being accompanied by two loved ones and having a short personal statement read as they walk across the stage. Graduates will receive a serape sash and gifts symbolizing the accomplishments of the Latino Community at the university.
