On behalf of the Center for European Studies and Professor Karla Mallette:

It is our distinct pleasure to honor this year's graduates receiving the minor in European Studies. There are courses in practically every department in LSA that cover European topics. But the Center for European Studies is the only campus unit to focus specifically on Europe, with a special emphasis on the European Union. These are very interesting times indeed for Europe, and we commend our students for choosing to study a part of the world that seems so familiar, yet demands our special and close attention at this point in history. The students graduating with a minor in European Studies this year are: Karla Fernandez, Anna Lichtman, Emily Thibodeau, Mark Wilhelm, and Lauren Wolfe.
