Nearly 400 International Students Graduate in the class of 2015
The Center for International Affairs is pleased to report that nearly 400 international students graduated in the class of 2015 at the May 17th annual commencement ceremonies (an increase of 25% from 2014).
A few days before the official ceremony, international students gathered for the inaugural International Student Graduation Celebration hosted by the Center for International Affairs where they heard remarks from special guest City of Cleveland Mayor Frank G. Jackson and had the opportunity to ask the Mayor questions. Students took a celebratory group picture with Mayor Jackson and will also receive a certificate of congratulations from his office.
If this new class of graduates follows similar paths as their predecessors, approximately 30% are expected to pursue an advanced course of study and over 60% have secured or are in negotiation for an internship or full-time employment. The international student graduates represent over 30 countries, all degree levels, and all the seven schools and the Colleges.
The Center for International Affairs congratulates the entire class of 2015.
