IADT-Online Graduates Walk the Stage

June 25, 2011

IADT-Online Graduation

Because IADT-Online students pursue their degrees from all over the world, our typical graduation ceremonies take place online as well. However, in an effort to continually promote student engagement and involvement, one of our goals is to provide our Online students the opportunity to travel to an International Academy of Design & Technology ground campus near them and “walk across the stage” upon their graduation if they so choose.

IADT has nine ground campuses around the United States, including in Tampa, Chicago, San Antonio, Nashville and Seattle.

On June 25, IADT-Tampa held its annual graduation ceremony.  The event was grand, with more than 1,500 people in attendance.  IAD- Online was well represented, with several graduates participating in the live ceremony.

Shown in the photo above are Graphic Design Department Chair James Greenwood, Graphic Design Graduate Penny Kalogris, Graphic Design Graduate James Grenier, Graphic Design Graduate Ligel Lambert and Graphic Design Graduate Maryam Syed.  These graduates traveled to Clearwater, Fla., so that their family and friends could see them graduate in person.

 If you are an IADT-Online student and are interested in participating in a live graduation ceremony, please be sure to contact me at wjoseph@online.academy.edu.

Congratulations to all of the 2010-2011 IADT-Online graduates!
