Honoring the Legacy Graduation Celebration

To the class of 2021: We celebrate and honor your legacy! We are proud of how much you have accomplished for yourselves, for your families, and us all. You are invited to the inaugural Honoring the Legacy event (RSVP link) to celebrate graduating FGLI seniors on Tuesday, May 25th from 12noon-1:30pm in the Hogwarts Tent (next to the parking lot at 301 High Street - Facebook event). The Socioeconomic Status and Disability interns in The RC created this event to celebrate the graduating FGLI community at Wesleyan. During the event the FGLI seniors will receive a free lunch, customized graduation swag, and well wishes from each other and the Wesleyan community. 
To everyone who have friends and connections to the FGLI students in the class of 2021, please help us celebrate them by submitting your best Wesleyan memories with the graduates and/or video recording a few words of congratulations (submission link), be it pictures or videos. The videos and pictures will be compiled together to form a post collage and video montage that will be displayed throughout the event.  The submission deadline is May 18th at 5PM.
