Congratulations to all of our graduating APIDA (Asian Pacific Islander Desi American) students!
Date: Thursday, May 4, 2023
Location: San Jacinto Multipurpose Room
After a nine-year hiatus, GraduAsian was revived in 2021 from students’ desire to be recognized for their achievements. GraduAsian is a celebration held to commemorate the many achievements of UT’s graduating Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) students. 2022 GraduAsian was momentous, as it was the first time celebrating APIDA students’ achievements in person.
By registering for GraduAsian, graduates will receive a custom GraduAsian stole and signature GraduAsian mug. In addition, the registration fee covers admission for family and friends to the celebration. We will have small bites featuring various Asian cuisine for you and your guests. The fee to participate in the GraduAsian ceremony is $35. If you would like to purchase the stole and gift only, the fee is $25. This fee can be paid at the registration link below.
