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 e-mail, and posted on this web site, by mid-April.
