H/Latinx Graduation!!!!!

You are cordially invited to the second annual Latinx Graduation ceremony on Friday, May 4th from 4-5pm in Brookens Auditorium.

The primary purpose of the Latinx Graduation ceremony is to recognize the academic accomplishments of the students who identify as Hispanic/Latinx and those students who belong to the Organization of Latin American Students (OLAS), Gamma Phi Omega Sorority, and/or Sigma Lambda Beta Fraternity. The event also serves to celebrate Latin American culture and provide younger students with an example of academic excellence. The event will be followed by a “Latino Party” sponsored by the previously mentioned student organizations from 5:30-10pm on the Quad.
