iSchool honored Summer Graduates at August 3rd Recognition Ceremony
On Friday, August 3rd, the iSchool hosted a ceremony to recognize students who completed their degree programs in June and August 2012. More than 300 attended the ceremony, which was held in the Assembly Room of the William Pitt Union. Faculty, staff, friends and families gathered to honor the 140+ students who successfully earned one of the degrees offered at the iSchool: BSIS, MSIS, MST, MLIS, CAS and PhD.
Dean Larsen, who acted as host for the event, discussed the exciting challenges facing the information professions and reminded graduates of how the School and the University had prepared them to help society successfully address them. Each student was personally congratulated by faculty members and the Dean, and was presented with a memento of this special occasion.
A representative of the iSchool Alumni Society, Samvith Srinivas, (MSIS ‘04, PhD ‘10), Vice President and President-Elect, addressed the graduates and welcomed them to the body of 13,200+ alumni worldwide.
