Congratulations Graduating Seniors!

The Center for Latin American Studies’ graduating seniors gathered in the Harvill Building for an informal pizza luncheon/awards ceremony on Thursday, May 5th. Many won awards from both CLAS and SBS, proving (as they do every year!) that CLAS produces outstanding students.


The semester's over, time to goof off! 


After the awards ceremony, the students talked about future plans with directors Colin Deeds and Marcela Vasquez-Leon, and each chose a book of Latin American literature as a parting gift and some “food for thought” for the summer. Congratulations graduating seniors! We look forward to seeing what you accomplish in the future! See the list of award-winners below.
