Thank you to all who joined us on Friday, May 24th to celebrate another great year of COMMA programming!
We honored our talented graduating seniors with many warm wishes and we extended a special, heartfelt congratulations to those who graduated with the undergraduate COMMA major specialization! This year was also the first full year of programming for the student-run undergraduate COMMA reading group that started last Spring when a few passionate undergraduates took the initiative to begin their own COMMA. This group is entirely student run & we are grateful and proud of all the hard work students put into programming and planning!
A thank you to our Center Director, Maurizia Boscagli, & the 2018-19 Center RA, Christine Weidner
~Stay tuned for more COMMA starting in the Fall when we welcome the incoming COMMA RA, William Collins~
