This is that bittersweet time of year when we congratulate our graduates and say “farewell” to seeing them on campus as “students”.
It’s reassuring to know that the MIIS family extends beyond our campus boundaries through continued friendships, city alumni group events (find a group on Facebook!), reunions, coworkers from MIIS, and more.
Congratulations 2013 Graduates!
May there be many conversations with MIIS colleagues and friends in the future.
