World Languages & Cultures Commencement 2013 Information


Dear Graduates,

You and your family are very cordially invited to participate in the Commencement Ceremony for the Department of World Languages and Cultures. The Department’s ceremony will take place at 9:00AM on Thursday, May 16th in the Spiritual Center.

Traditionally, the faculty reads a short paragraph about each student. We encourage you to write a brief paragraph (8-10 sentences) about yourself, perhaps highlighting some of your experiences here at TCNJ and within the Department. In addition, please provide us with a photo of yourself as a baby, or, if you prefer, a recent photo of yourself for the ceremony’s video presentation.

Please confirm your attendance so we can begin appropriate planning and include your name in the program.

The department ceremony is a wonderful way to celebrate together with your classmates and for faculty to meet your families. We hope to see all of you there!

Please send your paragraph and photo to Salvatore Paternostro at If you have any other questions, concerns, or special needs to for the ceremony, let him know.

Congratulations and all the best wishes!
