The College of Architecture + The Arts celebrated its fall 2014 Commencement on Tuesday, December 16, 2014, led by President Mark B. Rosenberg. As proud families and friends watched, he assured the class of 2014 that FIU will always be their home and advised them that their academic journey has prepared them to be worlds ahead.
Communication Arts students Esteban Aguerrebere, Kathryn Genevieve Alea, Nicole Andrea Anaya, Ximena Cuadra, Heather Leigh Flannery, Maryuris Maldonado, Christina Retena, and Charles Thompson graduated with prestigious honors such as cum laude and magna cum laude. Yiranny E. Guzman Ramirez received top honors and graduated summa cum laude, awarded only to those who have earned a cumulative GPA of 3.9 or better.
“Graduation was better than I ever imagined, the feeling of accomplishment is difficult to express in words! I had never attended a college graduation and it was very inspiring. I now feel prepared to enter the world as a Communication Arts graduate,” said Esteban Aguerrebere, a recent graduate.
Over 70 Communication Arts students walked across the stage at commencement to receive their Bachelor of Arts degrees. The largest group of graduates of the College of Architecture + The Arts stemmed from the Communication Arts department.
Congratulations to all our WorldsAhead graduates! Go out into the world and make us proud!
