|The IIC group at the International House|
Surrounded by good food and good people, the International and Intercultural Communications program met to celebrate the end of another school year at the International House on May 11. All that were in attendance were treated to a catered Italian dinner and were able to relax with fellow classmates for the night. The dinner included an annual tradition where students were given two pieces of papers - one to write something from the year that they wanted to let go and the other a wish or a hope for the coming year. Ceremoniously, each student burned the paper on which they wrote what had been weighting them down, while the other paper was folded up and put into an envelope to be opened at the end of next year.
The dinner also celebrated this year's graduates and their accomplishments. Margie presented the graduates with a gift and asked them to share what it felt like to be graduating from DU and embarking on a new journey. Laughs, stories, and food were all shared, creating a successful dinner and great way to end the year.
To all that were not in attendance, we wish you a luck on your finals and a happy and safe summer. We look forward to seeing all of you next year.
To this year's IIC graduates, we wish you luck in this exciting time in your life. This new chapter has many possibilities and opportunities and we hope that you come back to visit us to share some of them!
