The excitement that an individual feels when he has accomplished a big goal in their life- no doubt- the Graduation of a student is a moment to remember.
We had the opportunity to receive students from all continents in the world- coming from 32 countries. The 2009 Graduation ceremony was attended by students from countries such as Angola- Argentina- Bermuda- Botswana- Cameroon- Canada- Columbia- Costa Rica- Dominican Republic- Ecuador- El Salvador- Ghana- Guatemala- Honduras- Ireland- Kenya- Mali- Mexico- Nigeria- Panama- Peru- Puerto Rico- Qatar- Saudi Arabia- Sri Lanka- Tanzania- United Arab Emirates- United Kingdom- USA- Venezuela- Vietnam- Zambia. The energy that the staff shared with our graduates and guests was very special. “It was nice to put a face with the person that you speak to online”- said one of our graduates.
AIU’s Academic Dean- Dr. Franklin Valcin- had the chance to give a very special message to our graduated students- “Keep believing in yourself and in your capability to contribute to your community”. .
We also had the privilege to have Dr. Fidel Ramirez Prado- President of Universidad Alas Peruanas in Peru- attending the ceremony who received from AIU’s Board the “AIU Medal of Merit” for his contributions to Higher Education in his country Peru and worldwide as well.
The graduated students shared their AIU experiences with the audience- and the emotion filled the air. Each and every one showed what a special moment in their life was to complete a successful program at AIU and fulfill a longtime dream.
We also had six of our Doctoral Graduates presenting their final thesis and what they wish to do with their accomplishments.
Please stay tuned to see some of their testimonials coming to you soon.
