It’s that time of year again, when one chapter closes and another opens! New adventures and new experiences are on the horizon. You have finished all your assignments, took all the tests, and presented all the definitely not last minute powerpoints. That’s right, it is graduation time!

Congratulations to all our graduating students and hardworking staff/faculty that helped them along the way. This year was a whirlwind of memories and moments like Welcome Week, International Night, and USG’s Got Talent. There were highs and there were lows, late nights and early mornings, but you prevailed. All your efforts should be celebrated, which is why you are invited to our Spring 2019 Graduation Celebration! The celebration will take place on Thursday, May 9 from 6:30-8:30pm.

Take a walk down memory lane while reflecting on all the accomplishments you made while attending USG. Enjoy fun polaroid inspired photobooths, nostalgic candy, and yummy food. This is your moment and you deserve it all!
