We have had another busy spring semester here at the OU College of International Studies! Hopefully you have been able to attend a few of the dozens of international events and activities we have sponsored or co-sponsored throughout the spring. A few highlights include the visit of David Sanger, Chief National Security Correspondent for the New York Times; the After the Persianate: Cultural Heritage and National Transformation in Modern Iran and India conference featuring several scholars and thinkers focused on Iran and the Persian region; the International and Area Studies annual symposium highlighting Europe; several student-focused workshops; a number of international student cultural nights; and the always amazing Eve of Nations. The semester culminated in OU Commencement and CIS Convocation ceremonies that were truly the best celebrations we have seen. Indeed, there were a multitude of exciting activities to experience this semester – and a wonderful ending to another fabulous academic year. From all of us at CIS, we congratulate our graduates – and we wish all of you the best for a terrific summer. If you will be back on campus in the fall, we look forward to seeing you at our new home in Hester Hall!
