International Center Graduation Reception

Michigan Union
South Lounge
Graduation Reception

Description: The International Center is excited to celebrate the academic achievement of our international graduates this year! To celebrate, we hope that graduating international students will join us for a reception in the South Lounge of the Michigan Union (first floor, across from Sweetwater’s) to enjoy a few treats and pick up a graduation cord! 

The International Student Graduation Cord is a new initiative to showcase the broad impact of international students at U-M. These blue and green cords are only available to international students and symbolize their significant global contributions to our campus, both in and out of the classroom. There is no charge for the graduation cord. 

Graduation Cords will be presented to graduates at the International Center Graduation Reception, and are available to all students graduating in Winter 2022, Spring 2022, Summer 2022, and for those attending the 2020 Comeback Graduation. If students cannot attend the reception, cords will also be available for pick-up at the International Center.

Please complete this interest form by April 22 to claim your graduation cord and RSVP for the Graduation Reception. Those picking up cords at the International Center will be contacted via email with specific instructions by April 25.
