Fall iSchool Recognition Ceremony took place on December 9


On Friday, December 9, the iSchool hosted a recognition ceremony to honor 2016 fall graduates. Approximately 180 students, faculty, staff, family, and friends attended to celebrate our students' accomplishments at 5:30 p.m. in the Connolly Ballroom of Alumni Hall.

Opening remarks were given by Vladimir Zadorozhny, associate professor of Informatics and Networked Systems.

“I hope your time here has exposed you to a range of experiences that deepen your appreciation for the complex and the subtle, that heightens your ability to discern the elegant from the gauche, enabling you to think differently, to debate more passionately, to be troubled more deeply, to develop resolve more assuredly, and, finally, to act more confidently,” Zahorozhny said during his opening remarks.

More than 95 students applied for fall graduation. Please join us in congratulating our amazing graduates:
