Students from Argentina, Canada, China, Colombia, Germany, Great Britain, India, Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Thailand were among the many international students walking in celebration of their achievements in earning Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral degrees. Many international student graduates wore brightly colored sashes in recognition of their native countries as part of their commencement regalia.
For the past several years, CIE has sponsored the international flag sashes in celebration of UWM’s international student graduates. Students receive their sashes at a graduation party at CIE and then may wear the sashes over their robes when they march at commencement and receive their degrees. The sashes make a great keepsake and are a token of how honored we at CIE are to work with these talented students during their studies at UW-Milwaukee.
