Students recognized at FIU School of Architecture Graduate Awards


The FIU School of Architecture Spring 2014 Graduate Awards ceremony took place on Tuesday, April 29th, 2014 at the Paul L. Cejas School of Architecture building. The ceremony was a celebration for the graduates, as the SOA faculty wished them the best in their professional careers post-academia. The Graduate Awards ceremony, also, recognized graduates of outstanding academic merit and service to the FIU community.
