Graduation Reception

Every May, the Department of Linguistics holds a graduation reception and recognition ceremony. It’s a chance for us to congratulate and honor our graduates, and meet their friends and family.

Specific information about each year’s reception will be sent to graduating seniors by email, and posted on this web site, by mid-April.
