Expected events for the end of the semester

The end of the 2023-2024 school year is almost over, and some students may find the conclusion of the academic year to be bittersweet. While the end means finals are coming up, it also means…the end. Before summer arrives, the university has several end-of-the-year activities for students to participate in.

For those graduating…
